Angaza Afrika, translated from the Swahili to mean “Shed light on Africa” or “Look around Africa”, is comprehensive in its range. Each work will be a stunning visual and physical manifestation of the artists’ energy and spirit, such as Rachid Kora’s Sufi-inspired black and white applique work and the beautiful work of South African artist Karel Nel, who sets vast leaves from the Coco de Mer palms in atmospheric, elemental architectural spaces.
