Nicholas Hlobo is a Cape Town-based artist who has shown widely internationally. He thinks of identity as fabric: assembling bits and pieces of found materials, tenuously held by a thread, is like building an identity. The image is a still from a performance, part of an exhibiton at his gallery in December 2016, "Sewing Saw". A swaying figure is dressed in floor-length white robes, the face, hidden inside a wooden sewing box, faces a set of circular mirrors. The audience can't meet his eyes or break his concentration, he is isolated from them as he is from his own, half-hidden reflection.
