The multi-disciplinary artist Mohau Modisakeng focuses on South Africa’s tainted past and its effects today.  Modisakeng was born in Soweto and is based in Johannesburg, after having graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, UCT, with a Masters degree in Fine Art.  Despite the political undertones in his work, his approach is personal and symbolism is a key to its understanding.  The theme of violence which seems recurrent in a number of pieces is not only about a physical threat; he engages with it on political, economic, psychological and spiritual levels.  His work ranges from sculpture to performance art.
