South African artist, Lebohang Kganye has collaborated with The Georgian House Museum to create an installation as part of Bristol Photo Festival.
The Georgian House was once home to a sugar trader and his enslaved staff. Dipina tsa Kganya: Leave the light when you leave for good invites us to reflect on the legacy of colonialism as a shared history.
Lebohang’s black and white three-channel video installation offers a response to the violence of historical erasure of names and oral traditions.
Please note that this installation is on the first floor of the Georgian House and there is no lift access.
A maximum of two people can be in the room at once.
The light level in the installation space is low. If you have a visual impairment, please let our Visitor Assistants know on arrival.
The Georgian House Museum is open Saturday to Tuesday.
Pre-booking is advised but not essential as we can often accommodate walk-ups. Entry is free but donations are very welcome.
