“There is a clear intent in this project,” says South-African-based artist Zanele Muholi of her series “Somnyama Ngonyama,” on view at London’s Autograph ABP gallery through October 28. As Dazed notes in an interview with Muholi, she places emphasis on the words “clear” and “intent.” The artist says the work centers of the idea of representation: “I’m confronting the politics of race and representation in South Africa and beyond the South African borders in the most natural way I can – by presenting my own Black body.”
