International Women’s Month Series: Reshma Chhiba

Share

A collaboration between the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS), FNB Art Joburg and Open City, CONSTRUCT is a video-based series profiling femme artists with practices based in Johannesburg. Under the theme Reflections of Self, the second season sees artists interrogating ways that their personal lives show up in their practices.

In this week’s episode we hear from Reshma Chhiba. A visual artist and dancer, Chhiba is interested in the intersection between contemporary visual art and classical Indian dance practices in South Africa. The artist is the co-founder and Creative Director of Sarvavidya Natyaalaya and also serves as exhibitions curator at the Wits School of Arts. Referencing Kali, the Hindu goddess of ultimate power, time, destruction and change, Chhiba’s practice interrogates defiance and defiant womanhood.

Event details

The Anglo American art and object collection is a combination of art collected over several decades through four different companies: Anglo American, de Beers Group, Anglo American Platinum and Kumba Iron Ore.

The collection comprises of 3600 works, with around 1000 pieces in the collection on display at the newly commissioned Rosebank offices. Although vast, the collection experienced an acquisition hiatus from the early 2000s until 2021 creating a significant gap in the collection’s representation of contemporary art. The collection now has a dedicated curator, Megan Scott, tasked with its cataloguing and digitisation, opening an exciting new chapter which will see the gradual procurement of significant works that reflect our contemporary South African and African art world.
