Gabrielle Goliath with Amadour

South African artist Gabrielle Goliath and curator Emily Edwards spoke with me to discuss Chorus, Goliath’s first institutional exhibition in the United States. Goliath dismantles the complex traumas of colonialism and apartheid by constructing communal spaces of remembrance and mourning. Chorus is an elegy to Uyinene “Nene” Mrwetyana, a nineteen-year-old student from the University of Cape Town who was raped and murdered in 2019. She was killed in the Clareinch post office in Claremont, Cape Town, by postal worker Luyanda Botha while going to collect her mail. Mrwetyana’s death sparked the national #AmINext movement in South Africa and outrage abroad, putting in bold the international issue of gender-based violence.
