Join our Collections Curator, Karen Taylor, for an informal tour of Dineo Seshee Bopape’s work Sedibeng, it comes with the rain, 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.
