Dinika Govender is an emerging multimedia artist. With a multimedia background and no formal visual arts training, her practice is conceptual and experimental, geared at creating spaces that invite us to be “gently re-sensitised - to take a hard look at our patterns of thought, the cultures we participate in, and the systems we (often unwittingly) perpetuate.”
Currently based in Johannesburg, her creative practice sees macro themes of gender/race/colonial legacy/className/ecocide/and cultural imagination, rub up against internal themes of identity self-love/community/assimilation/and sheer survival.
"What are the dimensions of all these feels? Can I map them, architect them, touch, hear, taste them? Can I stress the borders between what is felt and what is said, what is said and what is done"
