Artist Statement


My practice engages with collaborative forms of photography, individuals, and nature. I completed my studies at CPUT in 2010. After, I was employed at a media company that I left in 2015 to further my studies in 2016. I have exhibited in various group shows with Subtle Agency and Intermission. I collaborated with Resonance Bazar on the Moonsoon Project—a performative research project looking into decolonizing cultural practices emerging in South Africa. I have an ongoing project with my twin sister, Carbon Copy (https://carboncopy.africa/), which interrogates the lives of twins. I currently live in Cape Town. @NONCEDOCHARMAINE
