Dondolo, the Witch Doctor's Assistant
Since the beginning of his young career, Simphiwe Ndzube has been exploring the interplay between the real and the magical, stitching together personal accounts and historical memories to give life to his creations. Born in 1990 in Eastern Cape, South Africa, and living and working in Los Angeles, Ndzube constructs imaginary pocket universes as a way to frame larger conflicts about racial identity and histories, political power and struggles, and globalization and freedom.
Dondolo is a flamboyant character, part human and part animal. He carries a precious stone in a wheelbarrow, a reference to diamond mining and land exploitation in South Africa. Water and fire clash between Dondolo and the idyllic landscape of the background. Standing on hooves, Dondolo is caught between paradise and hell, the rural and the industrial, oscillating between joy and desolation.
