Between the waters,
The waters were below.
And her curiosity: an instinct
that could build a village,
only it died when humans came into its habitat.
Zoleka Xoa Mannie is a 25-year-old Social ape, in essence: an aesthetic philosopher, creative, poet, philosopher, and visual communicator. She expresses my life as a hyper-romantic social ape that is passionate about the creation, discovery and the dominance of the human condition.
Perhaps some would say she lives in the abstract wildlife of her existence yet still resisting anything that dehumanizes the melanin identity and victories, especially being a young black woman living in South Africa, Johannesburg. She is feisty and against the crimes we commit against each other as people. She feels as though it is the right time to heal ourselves.
She would just like to contribute and engage her narrative as it extends and is inspired by the relationships in her life to maybe create intercultural dialogues. It is very mystical and purely focuses on the similarities in our human nature, of which I extend as metaphors for my ”empty museum”.
