Operation Restore Legacy invades SA

THE events of November last year when the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) carried out the famous "Operation Restore Legacy" will go down in history books as a turning point in the country's political trajectory.

Operation Restore Legacy led to the resignation of Robert Mugabe who had ruled the country for over three and a half decades.

It ushered in a new political dispensation that has brought with it hope for a brighter future.

Accordingly, a number of productions centred on the event have been created and are being followed by many both within and outside borders.

Earlier this year, a group of artistes put together an exhibition, "Lost and Found: Resilience, Uncertainty, Expectations, Excitement and Hope", which captures the events that surrounded this historic episode.

The local contingent of artistes responsible for the creation of the Lost and Found collection include Davina Jogi, Believe Nyakudjara, Charmaine Chitate, Zinyange Auntony, Ralph Chikambi and Jekesai Njikizana with Valerie Sithole and Raphael Chikukwa being the co-curators.

The artworks which range from photographs to oil on canvas recaptures the excitement that that manifested on November 18 last year when Zimbabweans took to the streets in support of the military operation while calling for Mugabe to step down.

The pieces reflect and interrogate what being Zimbabwean truly means.

After a good reception at the National Arts Gallery, the exhibition will be going international as it will take centre stage at the FNB Joburg Art Fair which runs next month from September 6 to 9 at the Sandton Convention Centre.

National Gallery of Zimbabwe chief curator's personal assistant, Fiona Chimombe told The Sunday Mail Society the exhibition had been great thus far.

She adds they are excited on getting the opportunity to showcase this particular collection at the FNB Joburg Art Fair.

The FNB Joburg Art Fair is one of Africa's leading talent exhibitions focused on contemporary art from the continent and diaspora.
