South African multi-disciplinary artist Lindiwe Matshikiza has a background in theatre, but she feels just as at home in visual media, performance art and interdisciplinary art projects. Her approach is experimental, process-driven and based in cooperation, with projects often taking multiple forms.
Her feature-length debut as a director is One Take Grace (2021), which is participating in the International Competition of DocPoint. The film about the life of South African Mothiba Grace Bapela, has been a decade-long project for Matshikiza and her team.
