Artist statement

Simnikiwe Buhlungu​ (1995) is an artist from Johannesburg, South Africa, and. Recent projects include Bergen Assembly: Actually, The Dead Are Not Dead, Bergen, Norway, 2019, and ​Collective Intimacies - Notes to Self: Intimate 1​, mural project, The Showroom, London, UK, 2019. She obtained her BA(FA) degree from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg (2017) and currently based in Amsterdam, Netherlands at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (2020–2022).

Interested in knowledge production, how it is produced – and ​by whom ​– it’s dissemination and it’s nuances as an ecology, she uses her practices to wrestle between these questions and their inexhaustible potential answers.

Lately, she enjoys listening to gospel music and has been thinking about combo organs.
