First Person Series: Teresa Kutala-Firmino

First Person Series: Teresa Kutala-Firmino

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

In this inaugural episode Teresa Kutala-Firmino walks us through the premise for her upcoming series The Owners of the Earth. An artist considering magic realism through paint and collage, the series sees her offering fantasy as an escapist response to trauma, a means to cope, heal and somehow survive the impossible.

Construct Series

Construct Series

Institut Français Afrique du Sud (IFAS) and FNB Art Joburg are delighted to present CONSTRUCT: a series focused on woman artists working in Joburg across all mediums.

Just as “construct” may refer to the physical act of building or making, a construct can also refer to a concept; one formulated without empirical evidence that therefore does not necessarily reflect the lived reality. In this way the series explores both the identity and gender constructs female identifying artists navigate through their work as well as the physical practice of each artist.
