House of Realness, Sipho Gongxeka
Limited Edition Zine and Tote Bag
Edition of 50
Created by artist Sipho Gongxeka as part of the exhibition FORMAT21 Presents: Here, There & Everywhere.
The first UK exhibition of House of Realness by Sipho Gongxeka attempts to challenge long-held notions of how black queer individuals are expected to publicly perform their identities, with a set of nostalgic images using an aesthetic that mimics a style of photography reminiscent of that of a street photographer, working in township communities in the 1980s, might have captured.
