Fly on the Wall

Fly on the Wall

South African painter Ina van Zyl was born in 1971 and published her first drawings in the review Bitterkomix, a South African comics magazine launched in 1992 by Anton Kannemeyer and Conrad Botes.

A caustic reflection on an Afrikaans world eroded by guilt and the abuse of power, Bitterkomix documents the period immediately following the abolition of apartheid. In it, the young generation spoke out for the first time about the ravages of racist politics in a mixture of existential angst, social criticism and sexual perversion.

But while her peers focused on sinister absurdities, Ina van Zyl drew attention to a word, gesture or detail symptomatic of South Africa's confusion and distress.  

This work gathers her first publications as well as a selection of her paintings.
