    Igshaan Adams on Kicking Dust

    Igshaan Adams is a South African artist whose work explores concerns related to race, religion and sexuality, through aspects of weaving, sculpture and installation.

    Introducing his Hayward Gallery exhibition, Kicking Dust, Adams discusses the show’s main installation, a 1:1 replica of a landscape in Cape Town’s Cape Flats. The installation reproduces the well-worn pathways, or desire lines, that criss-cross the scrubland between the separated neighbourhoods of Bonteheuwel and Langa.

    ‘I really do hope that the audience walk through the space, conscious that they are also choosing a path’
