White Termite (Beading)

The collaboration between Liza Grobler and Qubeka resulted in a spectacular 4-metre wide by 2-metre high beadwork entitled White Termite (2012). Featuring thousands of beads in various shades of blue, grey and white, this abstract work was created for Grobler’s solo exhibition at Brundyn + Gonsalves. In this work she humorously unearths the behavioural similarities between termites and people.

Having completed numerous works in collaboration, Qubeka and Grobler have established a rare working relationship that results in artworks that possess the energy of all who participated in the process of their making.
