Donna Kukama on Unfinished Stories

September 8th, 2016

South African artist Donna Kukama is creating an unusual book project for the 32nd Sao Paulo Biennial. During opening days of the international exhibition, she presents three chapters of the book in performances at three local cultural sites: the Consolação Cemetery, the Afro-Brazil Museum, and the Ciccillo Matarazzo pavilion where the biennial is held. Local history and current events inspire stories that unfold in video projections, storytelling, and public announcements. None of her layered narratives has an ending. All are unfinished, calling to mind the countless unresolved issues that cling to most of our personal and shared histories.
