Kitso Lelliott

Kitso Lelliott is an artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa preoccupied with enunciations from spaces beyond epistemic power, and the crisis such epistemically disobedient articulations cause to hegemony. Her work interrogates the ‘real’ and how it is shaped through contesting epistemologies, their narratives and the form these took across the Atlantic during the formative episode that shaped the modern age. Her work is an enactment of enunciating from elision and between historically subjugated subjectivities, privileging South-South relations in relation to yet imaginatively and epistemologically unmediated by the Global North.
