3D Tour

This will be a 3D tour where you can view the exhibition from the comfort of your own home. You will be able to walk through the gallery to view each artwork.

Nyokong is the most recent winner of the ABSA L’Atelier Gerard Sekoto award.  He’s artworks contain a variety of mediums from photographs to site specific installations.  The exhibition is named "Dinoolwane, Matlotlo le Baloi" Folklores, treasures and witches due to Nyokong’s fascination with indigenous Tswana culture and its rich folklore traditions. 

His work speaks to the secretive traditions and folklores of his culture, such as witchcraft and traditional rituals.  He combines these elements with more everyday objects to create a metaphoric and playful realm of magic.  He also explores the dream realm or the world of sleep.  He creates a safe space in which dreams, thoughts and myths can be explored.  It also serves as an intimate space in which the viewer can physically explore the realm of sleep and all it entails.
