First Person Series: Bonolo Kavula


First Person is an intimate video-based series by FNB Art Joburg where artists, curators and gallerists offer personal accounts of their platforms, practice, process, and projects.

This week we feature Bonolo Kavula. A multidisciplinary artist mostly known for bringing sculptural and textile sensibilities to printmaking, Kavula approaches contemporary art as a restorative entity. The 2022 recipient of the Norval Sovereign African Art Prize, Kavula is in the process of recovering from an eventful year. Reflecting on the ways her practice has developed and expanded, Kavula walks us through the challenges and opportunities that have come with her growth.
