Artworks by contemporary Namibian marble sculptor Kambezunda Ngavee are currently on display in the garden of The Village Garden Café along Liliencron Street in Windhoek.
The sculptures are anthropomorphic, blending human and animal while hinting towards topical social concerns and issues in Namibia and globally.
This pop-up exhibition was madepossible through collaborations between WHUDA Marble Art and StArt Art Gallery. Ngavee recently completed an artist’s residency at the Nirox Foundation in South Africa. His work is also featured in the exhibition ‘Indifference’, hosted at the Nirox Sculpture Park. Ngavee (31) received his diploma in visual art in 2017 from the College of the Arts. That same year, he participated in the Gé Pellini Marble Sculpting Project for the Hunters United Against Poaching Trust. He has participated in a number of group exhibitions, such as the Tulipamwe International Artists Workshop (2018), and has undertaken several workshops, including one led by the well-known stone sculptor Dörte Berner. His first solo exhibition ‘Set in Stone’ was held at the Franco Namibian Cultural Centre in 2018. Ngavee has been an active member of the WHUDA Marble Art team since March 2019. The WHUDA Marble Art collective was established in 2018 by Winfried Holze. The group makes use of locally-mined marble stone, and focuses on creating high-quality sculptures as well as transferring skills to “budding young stone sculptors”.
All sculptures are for sale.
