Khwezi Gule

Page 1


Khwezi Gule is an, artist, writer curator based in Durban, South Africa. He majored in printmaking and is constantly seeking ways of transcending the traditional two-dimensional print and incorporate the third nad fouth dimension (time) as well. Though his work may differconsiderably in terms of materials, the central concerns remains the same i.e. expanding the languages both formal and conceptual within the field of making prints. The print makes duplication possible and thus is more democratic, it makes art more accessible through reproduction.
From the potato print, to newspapers to the high-tech home-movie gadgets the print has always been the medium that is most adept to self-expression and widest distribution. Whoever you are, whether you are literate or not, you have at some point made a print. Khwezi's art alsoseeks to reawaken forms of popular media that have been forgotten by history, which is why he uses 8mm film (by scratching and drawing on the film) to create new narratives from old pre-existing footage. Khwezi sees his interventions as an artist as being inseperable from his writing and curatorial work because it comes from the same desire to make media, speech and creativity an everyday occurence for everyone.
