Unlimited Festival - Global Academy: Rachel Gadsen, Bambanani

A body of drawings, paintings and sketchbooks.

Fuelled by the politics and myths surrounding chronic health issues - in particular HIV/AIDS - this body of work offers perspectives on what it means to experience disabling conditions and to fight openly for life in the face of social taboos.

The exhibition also features seven short films, featuring Gadsden and the Bambanani artist-activist Group, which were shot on location in Khayelitsha Township and Cape Town. Made with filmmakers Cliff Bestall and Deborah May, each portrait offers a glimpse of the world as seen through its subject's eyes - at turns joyful, resolute, defiant, heartfelt and poetic. Viewed together, the series presents multiple reflections on the political and personal currents explored throughout Unlimited Global Alchemy. All films are fully subtitled in English.
