Kabelo Mofokeng is a visual artist based in the East Rand of Johannesburg. Mofokeng's interest in film and photography began in 2009, at AFDA, a film institution in Auckland Park, Johannesburg. It was in 2018 that Mofokeng enrolled at The Market Photo Workshop, completing the Foundation Course, Intermediate Course and the Advanced Photography Program (2019). In 2019 Mofokeng had the opportunity to intern at OUT WELL BEING, who were the sponsors of a drag beauty pageant, Miss Drag South Africa 2019. Mofokeng was a part of a group exhibition on the night of the pageant in Pretoria, at the State Theatre. Mofokeng on her work: The work I make is a reflective journey, the commentary suggested by the work is a subjective perspective, of my lived experiences as a black woman, as a mother, and as a daughter. The themes my work orbits around are secrecy, memory, family and anxiety. I explore possibilities of marrying visual narrative with soundscaping, in my work I look to expand my use of varied mediums in engaging a concept on multiple levels.
