Kitso Lynn Lelliott graduated from the Wits School of Arts with a Bachelors degree in Fine Art in 2006 and Masters in film and television in 2011. She is interested in ways that narratives and histories become privileged, those that proliferate being those that reflect and reinstate the power structures of globalization as it has emerged from a colonial and imperial past. She is interested in the ways in which historical narratives shape our contemporary world and ideas about revisionist re-membering of histories as a way of engaging memories, traumas and ghosts of the past. Her work is preoccupied with articulations from spaces beyond epistemic power so that the huge silences of subjectivities that have been written out come into view. She explores these ideas through film, video and installation work. Her work has traveled to a number of film festivals and exhibited around the world including in Scotland, South Africa, Singapore, France, Lithuania, Uganda and Brazil. She has participated in the Durban Talent Campus and the Berlinale Talent Campus and has most recently worked on the piece ‘Transatlantic Saudades’ developed at the Sacatar Institute in Brazil following a two-month artists residency from the foundation and the UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries program.
