Simnikiwe Buhlungu (1995) is an artist from Johannesburg, South Africa.
Interested in knowledge production[s] — how it is produced, by whom and how it is disseminated — Buhlungu locates socio-historical and everyday phenomena by navigating these questions and their inexhaustible potential answers.
Through this, she maps points of cognisance, i.e. how do we come to know, as syncopated and reverberated ecologies. Lately, she has been thinking about apiaries, listening to trees rustling and researching publication contributions to Simunye Resource Works, a publishing house that is forever yet-to-exist.
She is an artist-in-residence at the Rijksakademie 2020-2022.
