Pink is a color rarely found in nature… in a fictionalized natural space, [it] awakens and politely shocks the viewer into attention.
Get a glimpse inside Simphiwe Ndzube: Oracles of the Pink Universe and find more videos related to the exhibition on the museum's YouTube channel.
This illustrated companion to Oracles of the Pink Universe explores Simphiwe Ndzube’s practice of unpacking difficult South African histories through mythological narratives. The works inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights (1490-1510) depict a theatrical space where heaven, earth, and hell intersect. The catalog is available to purchase at the DAM's Shop or online.
