Lindiwe Matshikiza is a Johannesburg-based artist with a background in theatre-making. She works as a writer, performer, director and voice artist in a variety of contexts such as visual arts projects, public performances, stage plays, film and other media. Her approach is predominantly collaborative, exploratory, process-based and cross-disciplinary, and her projects often take on more than one form over time. Her recent work includes long term projects such as the play/film Desert, experimental documentary and life-writing work with Grace Mothiba Bapela – One Take Grace – and her performance and collusion in the partly fictional, metatextual project Film Festival Film which recently premiered at the 69th Berlinale. Lindiwe is also a trained ecdysiast, performing as The Secret Life of Plants.
