Simphiwe Ndzube: Embracing the Coexistence of Seemingly Irreconcilable Realities

Simphiwe Ndzube: Embracing the Coexistence of Seemingly Irreconcilable Realities

Simphiwe Ndzube (b.1990, Cape Town, South Africa) lives and works in Los Angeles, CA and Cape Town, South Africa. He received his BFA from the Michaelis School of Fine Arts in 2015. Ndzube’s work is characterized by a fundamental interplay between objects, media and two-dimensional surfaces; stitching together a subjective account of the Black experience in post-apartheid South Africa from a mythological perspective. In this film, we tour the intricacies of his studio and background, taking a close look at two of his recent exhibitions. The first, “Like the Snake that Fed the Chameleon,” at Nicodim Gallery, expands Ndzube’s cosmology, reimagining Black bodies as mythical and fantastic beings capable of inhabiting multiple dimensions. His figures fly, flail, fall, and dance their way from sculpture, to sound, to canvas through multiple environments, highlighting the fluidity and permeability of identity itself. Like the snake, his characters can be cold-blooded and stealthy; like the chameleon, they are capable of change. From here Ndzube goes deep into his most recent exhibition “Oracles of the Pink Universe” at the Denver Art Museum. This exhibition is an expansion of Ndzube's visual search that explores a mythological place, drawing from his personal experiences, imagination, and art history. He presents exclusive works that depart from Hieronymus Bosch's painting “The Garden of Earthly Delights” (1490–1500), depicting a theatrical space where heaven, earth and hell intersect. As we step into this alternate universe, we’re confronted with artworks that explore themes of conflict, tension, resilience, strength and a fight for human rights. Additional recent exhibitions include “The Fantastic Ride to Gwadana,” Stevenson Gallery, Johannesburg, South Africa (2020, solo); “INXS: Major Never Before Seen Works by Simphiwe Ndzube, Moffat Takadiwa, and Zhou Yilun,” Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles, USA (2020); “Hollywood Babylon: A Re-Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome,” Nicodim, Jeffrey Deitch, and AUTRE Magazine, Los Angeles, USA (2020). His work can be found in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon, Lyon, France; and the Iziko South African National Gallery, Cape Town, South Africa, among others.

Black Hole: A Space for Audio

Black Hole: A Space for Audio

"Audio is a temporary social architecture made of air." - From Figures in Air: Essays Toward a Philosophy of Audio, by Micah Silver. Black Hole is an artist-run space for audio in Los Angeles. Conceptualized by the artist Micah Silver, Black Hole is an environment where people can “listen to, think and talk about audio materials that are not possible to experience with widely-distributed audio technologies”. Located in Gardena, visitors enter through an unmarked door into the listening room - a black space with speakers mounted throughout. There, they experience their “session”, a time allotted to listen to a particular work. While sessions are the main focus of Black Hole, the organization also engages with the local community by offering free/low cost noise surveys and consultation services to respond to developments and construction in Los Angeles. Additionally, Black Hole’s LA Audio Solidarity program provides sound systems to activist groups and other community building actions. Black Hole’s creator, Micah Silver, is an artist and curator who studied music at Wesleyan and in MIT’s Art, Culture and Technology program. His work has been produced by MassMoca, Issue Project Room, Palais de Tokyo, and OK Zentrum, among other venues internationally. Silver also wrote the book Figures in Air: Essays Toward a Philosophy of Audio. *This film is best experienced with headphones or sensitive studio monitors.

TinDragon Media is not just producing and shooting content for anybody! Story has to be at the heart of our work. Authenticity and purpose is always our aim in what we create: for ourselves and our clients.

 

What is the soul behind that 30-second spot?

What is said in its narrative, subtext or tone?

To ensure quality work, we must be able to clearly understand, process and execute the story.

Depending on the style and scope, TinDragon specializes in producing content in the documentary-style format. The focus on interviews, atmospheric

B-Roll and editing can shape a variety of perspectives and emotions on one's story: entertaining, illuminating and empowering. Through documentaries, we witness perspectives that we wouldn't see ordinarily. Then we as creatives, piece together a portrait of that perspective for others to experience together. Plus we love interesting people and interesting discussions!

 

Current trends show that viewers seek authentic and genuine content from their favorite brands and franchises. Big brands and companies have veered away from the unrealistic representation of themselves to capture real stories and testimonials from their consumers, employees and impact in society, to connect with a broader audience.

 

That's where TinDragon Media can help

make those stories become a reality!
