Andile Dyalvane, Embo 'Origi', Glazed and Hand Painted Clay Sculpture

About

Widely considered one of South Africa’s foremost ceramic artists, Andile Dyalvane is guided by a deep spiritual connection to his Xhosa ancestors through his work. This large-scale ceramic sculpture is part of an installation of three works, made for the group exhibition Communion (14 November 2019 – 30 January 2020). They symbolize the three steps the artist views as essential for reconciliation and personal growth. Embo (the Xhosa word for “origin” or “memory”) refers to acknowledging one’s ancestors, which is aided with the burning of impepho (an indigenous African plant akin to clary sage). Nyulu (“purifying”) refers to the cleansing not only of space but also of minds, to bring about the humility and receptiveness necessary to receive wisdom. Umlisela Nomthinjane (literally “young men and women”) looks to the future – the next generation – to take these learnings and lead by example. This new work by Dyalvane radiates a newfound dynamism, the origin of which he locates in his own energetic shift as he works with a greater sense of abandon and an even deeper commitment to his lineage and internal exploration. Andile has exhibited his ceramics at galleries, fairs and museums all over the world, including a solo show at Friedman Benda in New York. He is frequently invited to give workshops and share his skills with the international ceramic community, and recently completed residencies at Leach Pottery in St. Ives, Cornwall (UK) and Haystack Mountain School of Craft in Deer Isle, Maine (US).

About The Maker

Southern Guild

View Profile
Southern Guild has spearheaded the high-end design category in Africa, propelling its artist-designers to make spirited, challenging and complex work. Its highly curated exhibitions have redefined global perceptions of African design and escalated its value on the international market. Since being founded in 2008 as the sole gallery representing locally made limited-edition design, Southern Guild has birthed a new category for artists and designers in South Africa. In 2011 it became the first African gallery to present at Design Miami, and in 2015 it was the first to be featured at Christie’s London’s annual design auction. The gallery shows regularly at Design Miami in Basel and the US, at Design Days Dubai and the Collective Design Fair in New York, resulting in sales to leading architects, top collectors and respected museums. It has had work from its collections included in Vitra Design Museum’s “Making Africa” exhibition and “Beauty–Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial” at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Against the backdrop of a design industry that is still fairly young, Southern Guild gives designers a platform to reimagine what is possible. Founders Trevyn and Julian McGowan are embedded in the South African cultural landscape and play integral roles in guiding, advising and mentoring designers.
