Mokgosis large-scale, figurative, and often text-based works engage history painting and cinematic tropes to uncover notions of colonialism, democracy, and liberation across African history. His most recent body of work, Democratic Intuition (2013 - present) poses questions about how one can approach ideas of the democratic in relation to the daily-lived experiences of the subjects that occupy southern Africa. Touching on the often-contradictory notions inherent in the concept and practice of democracy the individual in the face of the collective, intuitive versus inscribed behaviors Mokgosi probes the idiosyncratic ways in which democracy is reciprocated and unfolds across time. The ongoing projects first iteration was exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston in 2015, and two new chapters, Lerato and Comrades II were presented at our Chelsea galleries in September 2016.
