Sifiso Majola

Run silent, run deep

Part of "Return to Sender"


ca. 60 Min

What is power, and who holds it? Is it possible that the one who flaunts it, doesn’t have it? Sifiso Majola's new group piece "Run silent, run deep" is an interrogation of the notions of power, its representations, its masquerades, its presences and absences. It is a resounding question of having, or not having, in a world full of echoes of colonial mimicry, of being, only when one can have. Or buy. What chance to be, when one can’t have?  What is the place of citizenship within a political and cultural vacuum?  If that, which parades as power, is not, what then is the recourse for the absolutely powerless?
