Born and based in South Africa, Dineo Seshee Bopape addresses politics, race, spirituality, gender and sexuality in her ambitious large scale installations which are created with using sound, found objects and moving image.

About

Sedibeng, it comes with the rain is an immersive installation set in an environment of reflecting and refracting light, on a floor strewn with feathers, metal abstractions, letter charms, bags of healing herbs, images of ripe fruits and flowers native to Africa, the work explores notions of fertility, land, resistance, Afro-diasporic spiritual aesthetics and practices. Bopape has exhibited work across the globe, including at the 10th Berlin Biennale and Palais de Tokyo, Paris. This will be the artist’s first major solo presentation in England.

Sedibeng, it comes with the rain was acquired by the Contemporary Art Society for Towner’s collection at Frieze London in 2017, joining many other works in Towner’s collection anchored in a strong sense of place.
