#WCW: South-African artist Nandipha Mntambo (@nandiphamntambo) creates figurative sculptures from cowhide that draw attention to the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature. . "My intention is to explore the physical and tactile properties of hide and aspects of control that allow or prevent me from manipulating this material in the context of the female body and contemporary art. I have used cowhide as a means to subvert expected associations with corporeal presence, femininity, sexuality and vulnerability. The work I create seeks to challenge and subvert preconceptions regarding representation of the female body." - @nandiphamntambo. . .
