LEONCE RAPHAEL AGBODJÉLOU, smac gallery, Cape Town, South Africa from 09/03/15 to 10/17/15

Egungun Masquerades is the Benin-based photographer Agbodjélou’s first solo exhibition in South Africa. This is his most recent series depicting incarnations of the Yoruba tribe’s ancestral forebears, who appear at funerals and annual festivals in ritualised parades, magical feats and colourful pageantry. In these photographs, Agbodjélou explores the complex role of the Egungun, capturing both their individual personalities and mannerisms, while emphasising their unequivocal presence as enigmatic spiritual manifestations.

The exhibition will run until 17 October 2015.
