The CHR congratulates, Artist in Residence, Kitso Lelliot on the opening of her Mancoba exhibition in Sweden. Kitso Lelliot is an Andrew W. Mellon Artist in Residence at the Centre for Humanities Research. The show is at The Södertälje Konsthall in Sweden, and will run from the 7th March until the 10th of May.
In a Facebook post Joanna Sandell, the curator at The Södertälje, wrote “Mancoba – An Artist and His Legacy” and one of the contemporary artists exhibiting is @kitsolynnlelliott. I have loved Kitso’s work ever since I was introduced to her by @breezeyoko. Kitso spent time with the archive of Ernest Mancoba and she has created a very sensitive installation that is carefully layered around Ernest’s life, art and legacy. Through movement and dance she approaches Ernest’s ink drawings that allude to dance, a secret, sacred language.”
