On The Brink exhibition this Thursday

Art lovers are in for a treat this Thursday as visual artists Ndakondelwa Nghipandulwa and David Indongo officially open their exhibition at the National Art Gallery of Namibia.


The two emerging artists have partnered together to apply their skill set to advocate for the conservation and safeguarding of the Rhinoceros. The duo state that as human beings belong to and with the rest of the vast linked miracle that we call nature, through an inescapable network of mutuality. Therefore, everything within nature should be respected and worked with instead of against as an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.


The duo met in 2018 at the Tulipamwe international artist’s workshop and found that they had similar goals and believed that together they could make an impact. In this exhibition Ndako creates striking portraits of the rhinos using nails and thread on rhino board, the nails create an outline to which he adds depth using wool. These works highlight the strength and resilience of the rhino. In contrast, David’s work leans towards the empathetic element, portraying images of young rhinos with their parents through his pointillism style, creating an image that is there but not quite there.


“Through this exhibition, we would like to create more awareness on this issue. Hopefully, we will be able to convince the audience to take this seriously and get involved in any way that they can,” they said.


The event starts at 18H00 at the National Art Gallery of Namibia.
