WHAT WE KNOW is an exhibition project organised by INCCA considering generational and embodied knowledge by way of ‘unlearned’ art-making. Many of the artists we are researching are formally trained, some are recent graduates and all of them speak to the sometimes necessary phase of unlearning institutional pedagogy. They embody the idea of learning the rules in order to break them, pointing to the way in which many artists based on the tip of Africa are establishing a singular voice that taps into internal knowledge. The participating artists follow various personal steps to create their work: an assembly of fragments that punctuate self-reflection. The project is also a continuous contemplation of our research and appreciation of reflections of artistic expressions and shared knowledge inherited from people’s ancestors. The exhibition aims to showcase different forms of knowledge and practices concerning personal narratives, nature and the universe.
