Born in 1978 in Johannesburg, South Africa. She lives and works in Soweto, South Africa.
Turiya Magadlela uses pieces of fabric, uniforms and panty hose, which she cuts, folds or stretches over a frame to create abstract compositions where the complex threads of the history of racial and sexual discrimination are intertwined. Her work expresses the issues at the crossroads of the intimate sphere and the space of individual autonomy in the context of South African society that remains repressive.
After her studies at the University of Johannesburg until 2001, she continued her art studies at the Rijksakademie, in Amsterdam (2013-2014). She was the recipient of the FNB Joburg Art Prize in 2015. In 2016, she participated in the Armory Show and her work was presented at the collective exhibition Blackness in Abstraction at the Pace Gallery in New York.
