Everard Read Cape Town | Pula e ya na

Everard Read Cape Town is excited to present 'Pula e ya na' by Atang Tshikare.

Step into a realm where art and storytelling collide in the exhibition. As the second installment of the ‘Peo e Atang’ trilogy, 'Pula e ya na' is a multidisciplinary showcase featuring sculptures laden with narratives. The ‘Peo e Atang’ series has been developing since the birth of Tshikare’s first son, Peo, in 2020. The body of work emerged in response to seismic shifts in the familial, social, and economic order.

‘Peo e Atang’ as a whole explores the remarkable journey of young Peo (the ‘seed of great hope’), who leaves his subterranean home on a quest for self-actualisation. From the desert to the mountains and from the forest to the sea, driven by sheer willpower, Peo is befriended by a cast of exotic, mythical and mystical beings that aid or obstruct his expedition.

This new body of work is a heartfelt tribute to Tshikare’s second-born son, Pula Khanya, whose names symbolise 'falling rain and light,' ushering in a sense of growth, abundance, and renewal.

Through the works, Atang Tshikare expresses his visionary African identity in a contemporary art language. The stories told through the sculptures are an affirmation of the transcendence of self through adversity – not just as a possible, but a necessary spark for true reawakening. “Ho kokosa ('to lift up' or ‘raise up’) is a profound aspiration I hold for everyone, particularly children,” says the artist.

This show runs from 8 May - 5 June 2024.
