FESO: A THORN IN THE FLESH | Patrick Bongoy and Ronald Muchatuta

18 Oct 2018 - 01 Dec 2018



“With this body of work, I will be taking a close look at the conditioning and inheritance of the children of the African Soil and the issues and adversities that are the consequence of our post-colonial narratives as Africans”

– Ronald Muchatuta

“My work speaks in response to the global reality of literal and figurative environmental pollution. This encompasses the entire spectrum from the erosion of economic viability, the impact on the community and individual behaviour and socio-cultural decay of the rural and urban landscape”

– Patrick Bongoy

Both artists now live and work in Cape Town and draw from their own migratory and lived experiences of post-colonial African spaces. Through their creative practice to unpack the long-lasting and painful effects of colonialism they wish to remove the feso from the flesh of modern-day African society.
