Ndzube has always had a love for art. In the early stages of his career, he told stories inspired by the struggles faced by township residents, specifically in Masiphumelele where he grew up. “I’ve always been involved as a creative growing up, taking formal and informal art classes, dancing, and then later going to art school. Art School gave me the confidence and a bigger perspective of the art world and that’s how I went in, often times blindly,” he says....

Wilde Reiter is, ultimately, an evolution of work centralized around personal narrative, cultural narrative, and the subjective marriage of the two as seen through a lens that pushes the viewer to evaluate their stance on the subject matter in a Brechtian manner—making the familiar strange.
Nicodim Gallery is proud to announce our participation in the Acid-Free Los Angeles Art Book Market where the long-awaited exhibition catalogs for Omul Negru, Basilisk, and The Hierophant will be presented for the first time alongside a series of new energy-harnessing works by Lazaros.
Hervé Mikaeloff, the curator of the exhibition, strives to create a couple of multidisciplinary scenes, where the art pieces and artists behave as actors. Artists will share their vision on architectures, utopias, savoir-faire, memory and their willingness to receive or free themselves of public heritage.
The title of this exhibition “Jungles in Paris” has been borrowed from the Henri Rousseau exhibition at Tate Modern in 2005-06 (later show at Grand Palais, Paris and National Gallery, Washington). The visual tension created by the juxtaposition of two seemingly disparate environments (the sophisticated urban Paris versus the exotic wild untethered jungle) is the foundation for Ghenie’s new body of work.
Nicodim Gallery is thrilled to announce its participation in the 2018 incarnation of The Armory Show with Limbo Colony, a solo booth by the South African artist Simphiwe Ndzube.

Do you like ghost stories? Want some new nightmares?
The invocation of Omul Negru at Galeria Nicodim in Bucharest, and then again with its resurrection at Nicodim Gallery in Los Angeles was an alignment of anthropology, ritual magic and sacrilegious geometry set inside curatorial red rooms. The corresponding codex is at once a grimoire and a folklore as much as it is an exhibition catalogue and an anthology of evil. It will define a new kind of pornography and should not be treated lightly as it possesses the most evil representations of humankind's darkest nadir.
The book contains texts from Aaron Moulton, Alissa Bennett, Dr. Philip Zimbardo, Reverend Jim Jones, Albert Fish, et al.
In conjunction with her current eponymous exhibition at the gallery, Ecaterina Vrana's new book As I Lay Living has been released.
Please contact the gallery for more info or copies of the catalog.

He’s represented by Pace, Tim Van Laere Gallery, and Galerie Judin, and is cofounder of Galeria Plan B, which has locations in Cluj and Berlin. He lives and works in Cluj and Berlin.
