Mighty-Man Vanguard ’76

US $244.72

Formed in 2019 by Adilson De Oliveira (b.1998) and Mzoxolo Mayongo (b.1986), the Magolide Collective is concerned with transforming a barrage of collected reference material – historical narratives, cultural events, and academic texts – into visual renderings that incorporate performance, digital and video media, and more traditional disciplines like printmaking. The duo names this act “visual alchemy”, a notion related to their moniker: “Magolide” is a colloquial Xhosa term describing someone with gold (teeth, chains, watches) and also references the socio-political histories of Johannesburg, a city literally built on gold – and on the labour of black migrant workers.

Magolide has shown their work and presented their research at a number of international exhibitions and events, including the Kampala Biennale (Uganda, 2021), i-D Magazine’s Global Design Graduate Show (UK, 2020), P–OST Contemporary in the Netherlands (2021) and at the Arts Council of the African Studies Association Triennial (ACASA) (2021).

* True to the layered nature of Magolide’s thematic concerns, practice of building composite images, the artist duo added a final finish – an irreverent addition to the layered complexity – in the form of AR. By viewing the print through the Artivive app, viewers are treated to an extra, animated interaction with the work.
