Turiya Magadlela

Johannesburg, South Africa

Turiya Magadlela (b. 1978, Johannesburg, South Africa) is based in Johannesburg. Her practice has been shaped by the city, by the people, politics, violence, and passions within it, and she translates her experiences into her fabric-based works. Magadlela selects commonly-found fabric, including pantyhose and overalls from prisons, and stretches them over a canvas, creating abstract compositions through the manipulation of the textiles.
