Richardt Strydom

I explore the boundaries of cultural and art traditions and identity, as these intersect with everyday life. South African Resistance Art of the late 1980s and early 1990s has had a lasting influence on my oeuvre and art making. The title of Ngugi wa Thiong'o's 'Decolonizing the Mind' serves as reference for my current body of work. Using this as a point of departure, I question hegemonic identities such as whiteness and masculinity and endeavour to make visible the ways in which postcolonial whiteness is performed.
