David Krut Projects is pleased to present EDEN – an exhibition of artworks by contemporary photographer Lebo Thoka whose feminism lends itself to her artistic practice. Included in this showcase are images from Thoka’s 2016 series titled It is well: An Ode to Karabo; Seeds of the Dirt from 2020 as well as exclusive new images titled Black of my Flesh 2020 & Initiation of Mary 2020.
EDEN is an exhibition that explores black womanhood with just as much grandiosity, just as much power, and limitlessness as the characters seen in the traditional western iconography. EDEN also examines the lived realities, and oppressive systems faced across the African diaspora.
This exhibition will also be showcased online on the David Krut Portal, find out more about Lebo Thoka at www.davidkrutportal.com
