Rangoato Hlasane 

July 2014

Rangoato Hlasane took up residence at the South London Gallery in July 2014 as part of the EU Culture Programme’s Urban Biotypes project for two weeks. 

Rangoato Hlasane is a Johannesburg-based artist, cultural worker and co-founder of the Keleketla! Library, which empowers inner-city youth and emerging creatives through art, culture and heritage programmes.

As part of his SLG residency, Rangoato Hlasane facilitated a creative exchange between Mysterious Creatures Dance Fusion (Keleketla! Library's dance group in Johannesburg) and The Art Assassins (the South London Gallery's young people forum) in an attempt to unpick the global conundrum: ‘We know each other but we don’t know much about each other’.

The project culminated with a live listening party. The public were invited to witness and participate in their process of deciphering and cataloguing 'what one can know about' the experience of young people.


 

Supported by Chelsea Arts Club Trust and the EU Culture Programme as part of the Urban Biotypes project.
