Sihle Sogaula

MAFA candidate, Honours Programme in Curatorship

Sogaula (b. 1993, eQonce) is interested in fashion as cultural phenomenon and how it becomes inextricably implicated in the construction of group and individual identities. Her current research is an exploration into the ubiquity of the fashion moment in contemporary South Africa and its remarkably ordinary presence in daily life. By reading South African fashion and its representations as text, Sogaula wishes to explore the ways in which meaning is inscribed on the body, and how social subjects reimagine binary constructions of identity. Currently Sogaula is completing an MAFA and is the Honours in Curatorship co-ordinator at the CCA.
