FNB Art Prize winners: Van Vueren and Xaba on creating ‘Uncles & Angels’

Van Veureun and Xaba 'Uncles & Angels'

 

Collaboration, embracing the ‘messiness’ of each performance, and the role of the viewer: FNB Art Prize winners Mocke J Van Vueren and Nelisiwe Xaba unpack Uncles & Angels

 

Uncles & Angels is a collaborative dance and film project created by Nelisiwe Xaba and Mocke J van Veuren. Originally produced as a stage performance, the stereoscopic film employs a minimal, constrained aesthetic within a box-like spatial frame to metaphorically elaborate on conceptions of feminine purity and virginity under patriarchy.
