FRANÇOIS KNOETZE (SA), Cape Mongo, 2015

Cape Mongo follows the stories of five characters as they journey through the city of Cape Town. Each Mongo character is made from the city’s discarded waste – mythical ‘trash creatures’ which have emerged from the growing dumps of consumer culture. In five short films, the creatures revisit the spaces of their imagined pasts – the locations associated with their material existence and the constitution of their social relations – as if walking against the consumer-driven currents of city. These journeys conjure up imagery that touches on some of the historical trajectories that have lead up to the endemic inequality and social alienation which characterises present day Cape Town.

François Knoetze wasborn in Cape Town South Africa in (year) 1989. Lives and Works in Cape Town, South Africa. Is Master in Fine Art by Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town. Performs and exhibits work regularly since 2012.
