Pitika Ntuli presents “Azibuyele Emasisweni (Return to the Source)” at the Oliewenhuis Museum of Art in Bloemfontein

“Azibuyele Emasisweni (Return to the Source)” is Pitika Ntuli‘s latest exhibition, which was opened at the June 2020 celebration of public art expressions by Naledi Pandor. It was important for this main festival program that tested the fixed meanings of contemporary and conventional art.
As a Sangoma, it was not unexpected that Pitika Ntuli chose creature bones as the medium for this collection of works – 45 bone sculptures usually matched with acclaimed melodies. African mysticism and contemporary art are rarely associated and her use of creature bones (elephant, rhino, giraffe and horse), tenderly coaxed into molded human models, results in striking works.
