Goodman Gallery is one of the most distinguished and longest-standing international contemporary art galleries. Established in Johannesburg in 1966, the gallery works with artists who are at once contemporary, influential and strive to shift perspectives and engender social transformation.
Founded during the era of apartheid, Goodman Gallery offered a non-discriminatory space when museums served the agenda of the autocratic government. Since 2008, under the directorship of Liza Essers, Goodman Gallery has expanded on this legacy, shifted its focus, and introduced numerous pivotal curatorial initiatives and partnerships.
Nyasaland Analysand is Samson Kambalu's second solo exhibition with Goodman Gallery. For this exhibition Kambalu draws on his Malawian upbringing surrounded by syncretic cultures to produce work that celebrates and interrogates the practice of integrating Western influences into local traditions and customs.
Kambalu works with site-specific installations and films to explore these questions of identity and culture. Through references to a childhood brand of gum, the dances of the Beni, Mganda and Malipenga, as well as Hollywood Westerns, Kambalu tells a story, highly personal in nature, of the post-colonial cultural condition.
