South Africa’s national exhibition for Biennale Arte 2022 proposes an existential journey of introspection and self-discovery delving into the alternate realm of fantasy and imagination. The aim is to reflect on what define ourselves, our vision and our goals, as the first step towards a redefinition of how we interact with our ecosystems and other species.

“Into the Light” reflects on this process of introspection and proposes that adversity can bring opportunity, as happened during Covid-19 when being cloistered in our homes, unable to travel or engage personally with our peers, afforded us the time and undistracted privacy to redefine our self-identity and seek personal truth.
