Published on the occasion of Nandipha Mntambo's first solo exhibition, Ingabisa
, this catalogue brings together her works to date, including pieces produced for her BAFA and Master's degree shows. Mntambo has developed a distinctive aesthetic through her use of cowhide, which she tans and moulds onto casts of the female body. The hairy skin is used to 'challenge and subvert preconceptions regarding representation of the female body', and to 'disrupt perceptions of attraction and repulsion'. Images of the works are accompanied by an essay by Bettina Malcomess.
