This catalogue documents Nicholas Hlobo's first solo exhibition, Izele
. Hlobo has built up a distinctive body of work that engages the viewer in conversations about sexual identity, masculinity and ethnicity. To these ends he harnesses the associative potential of materials such as rubber inner tubes, ribbon, soap, silicon and found objects, and makes use of his own body in performance. Photographs of the exhibition are accompanied by texts on the work by Hlobo, from an interview with Sophie Perryer.
