Unit Structures II, 2019

The work of Mongezi Ncaphayi is influenced by the mining, the history, the displacement and the migration. He translates all these topic into abstraction. 
"Where I grew up also influences me. I grew up in a small town that used to be a small mining town in Benoni, east of Johannesburg. My personal history, my family history, the history of the town, the South African history, these are main influences which have got me to where I am now." He is also very much influenced by the jazz music, he is also a saxophonist himself.


He says "My works are like maps, searching where you are going, allowing yourself to receive things, allowing yourself to be exposed to something new. Instinct is important." As his work progresses, his working method is becoming more and more intuitive and takes its roots in the present moment.
