Dineo Seshee BOPAPE, Convoluted Story, 2020, Mud drawing, variable dimensions
South African Dineo Seshee BOPAPE is a Polokwane-born multidisciplinary artist who combines a myriad of mediums using sounds, videos, and organic elements. BOPAPE’s material and immaterial objects engulf the audience and attempt to understand the world and its narratives. Influenced by literature, thinkers, TV, books, music, popular culture, and recordings, BOPAPE creates experimental and playful video works and sculptural installations that reflect various aspects of culture. She finds inspiration in the metaphysical, spiritual, and cultural aspects of the earth—soil, clay, dust—which she reconstitutes as artistic forms that gently let the audience mediate and make their own interpretations.
