Afronova, the Johannesburg-based gallery launches its first Viewing Room with BIC artist Alice Mann.

Born in Cape Town in 1991, Alice Mann lives and works between Cape Town and London. She is a South African photographic artist whose intimate portraiture essays explore notions of picture-making as an act of collaboration. She aims to create images that empower her subjects and develops projects over extended periods of time, allowing for engaged and nuanced representations.

The Viewing Room comprises a text on Mann’s practice by BIC artistic director Christine Eyene and an audio description of an image from the photographer’s award-winning Drummies series that will be presented at the 5th BIC.
