World Art     

Serge Ntamack

Born in Cameroon in 1983. After obtaining a BA degree in Political science and law from the University of Yaoundé, he got a Norwegian scholarship to study International Political Economy in Norway and in South Africa. On completion of this he decided to stay in SA, obtained a studio and started to create the artworks that will be on display at the exhibition.

Personal ambitions and passions:
When asked what he wants to do, he answers “to build”. There is beauty and hope in many things and these things can be the building blocks for a better world if reconstructed in new ways.


The Black Box gallery continues to introduce new and relatively unknown artists with its latest exhibition titled Building and deconstruction, by Cameroonian artist Serge Ntamack.
The exhibition consists of sculptures made from found objects with a strong theme related to the importance of deconstruction in the process of building. Existing items were fragmented and put together again to create new items that are now are for different purposes than originally intended. This is relevant to objects but can also be used as a metaphor for the relations between society and individuals.
