Elements of Andile Dyalvane’s acclaimed series, iThongo, can be seen in his new work, this piece. Thongo, meaning “ancestral dreamscape” in Xhosa, refers to the medium through which messages (uYalezo uLwimi lwabaPhantsi) are transmitted from the ancestors. As such, it is an essential energetic link between the past, the present and the future, and the vital connection that fuels Dyalvane’s artistic practice and spiritual being.
iHlati (Forest) is the actual symbol of the greenery found in a forest. It celebrates the natural environment: the trees, forest, and spring season, while also reflecting on the ways in which, as humans, we relate to these spaces; simultaneously relying on and destroying our surroundings.
