Icilengwa Lesa: Transcendence Through Flight

MFA Exhibition

by Aaron Samuel Mulenga

Venue: Nun's Chapel, Rhodes Campus

Date: 10 August 2019

Time: 5.30pm

Mulenga's work deals with the overlaps and slippages between Christian iconography and â€˜traditional’ Zambian cultural/religious practices. Through the use of inculturation Mulenga combines these seeminling disparate perspectives to create his work. 

Transcendence serves as the entrance point through which to interrogate flight through spiritual means in both Zambian culture and Christianity. This exhibition serves as a platform for questions to be asked and spiritual concepts to be interrogated. It is this "questioning" that is pivotal to Mulenga's research regardless of whether an answer is realised or not.
