SAFFCA in association with AFSACSA would like to welcome Helena Hugo and Keneilwe Mokoena to the residency program at Entabeni Farm, Knynsa.
They will be in residence until the end of November so be sure to follow us on all of our media platforms to keep an eye on what they are doing and when you can visit them for their official Open Studio.
About the artists:
Helena Hugo has been a full-time artist since graduating from the University of Pretoria in 1996. She is mostly known for her highly finished pastel portraits of South African labourers. Recently she has also started to revisit the medium of oil paint as well as exploring the world of fibre arts, using as her medium re-appropriated clothing previously worn and owned by South African workers. Through these mediums she investigates the universal human condition and the cycle of birth, life, death and resurrection.
