South Africa’s national exhibition proposes that, as ruinous as the Covid-19 pandemic has been, adversity can bring opportunity. The theme "Into the Light" is an invitation to use this opportunity to step into the light of self-discovery. The exhibition features artists whose work reflects personal journeys through sophisticated use of photography, new media, and technology. The three artists are Roger Ballen, Lebohang Kganye, and Phumulani Ntuli. The exhibition layout takes the viewer on a journey that symbolises a process of self-discovery and moving “into the light”. It does so by leading the visitor through different layers of exploration that become more intimate and personal.
