Io Makandal

(b 1987South Africa. Lives and works in Cape Town)

Makandal is intrigued by how humanised activity on earth creates a binary relationship between nature and society and how this dynamic is continually evolving. The work acts as a fictional space and place that illustrates the fluctuation between the environments we create and the supposed natural realm. Marks and colours create visual mind-scapes and alternate landscapes, and implied realities.

“I am interested in matter, intersectional spaces, hybrid environments, relational realities, pataphysics, autopoiesis and third landscapes in the time of climate change”.
