Commune.1

Founded in 2011, Commune.1’s main gallery is dedicated to large-scale installation and sculpture. It is one of the few spaces in the country that offers a platform for artists interested in creating immersive environments with gallery-spanning art. By doing this it aims to expose new and established audiences to art ‘experiences’ rather than the more traditional modes associated with commercial art galleries.

Following a two-month in-gallery residency at Commune.1 Mabulu’s large-scale paintings and paper works are presented in progress along with materials, visual references, writings on the wall and other outcomes of his creative process. According to the artist, working in this way in the gallery space is like a mirror of the unfinished business of racial redress and thus assumes a performative function.
