Standard Bank Young Artist 2016:
Mohau Modisakeng 

Mohau Modisakeng was born in Soweto in 1986 and works between Johannesburg and Cape Town. He received the Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Visual Art in 2016. Modisakeng uses his body to explore the influence of South Africa’s violent history on how we understand our cultural, political and social roles as human beings. Represented through film, large-scale photographic prints, installations and performance, Modisakeng’s work responds to the history of the black body within the (South) African context.
