Nandipha Mntambo (b. 1982, Mbabane, Swaziland) lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa. Hathor is a self-portrait of the artist as Hathor, one of the most important goddesses of ancient Egypt. Mntambo’s confrontational and alluring sculptures challenge and subvert preconceptions of Black female representation, and disrupt perceptions of attraction, repulsion, and the corporeal.
