Thalente Khomo

Thalente Khomo was Born in Port Shepstone (Gcilima), South Africa. She creates imaginative works in photography, performance, textiles, and printmaking. Drawing on her personal and cultural histories, her images give visual form to a physical and spiritual world, modern and ancient. Through her work, she aims to delve into her childhood memories, exploring them to gain a deeper understanding of belonging. Her practice centres on themes of spirituality, trauma, and antiquity, all filtered through the lens of imagination, research, self-evaluation, and recollection.

Additionally, she is fascinated by the memories that second-hand clothing carries and how these experiences, woven into the fabric, connect people. As part of exploring this concept, she also draws parallels between humanity and the environment.
