Artist Dineo Seshee Bopape
Year Created 2011

Dineo Seshee Bopape (b. 1981) is based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

This remarkable many-coloured screenprint has been commissioned especially for ArtThrob. It was printed at Caversham Press by Malcolm Christian, assisted by Alex Shabalala, in KwaZulu-Natal where Bopape worked in residence. Bopape’s work is characterised by an evocative and deeply personal interest in locating herself in space and time. This manifests as a dance between surface and screen, personal history, and the banality of ordinary objects and moments. In Chat-Scat, the television test pattern and quote from an online chat forum explore a particular immaterial aspect of the virtual techno-scape, whilst simultaneously claiming that space for the artist’s personal history.
