Born in 1990 in Katlehong, South Africa. She lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Lebohang Kganye began studying photography at the Market Photo Workshop from 2009 to 2011. In 2015, she won the special Prize at the Rencontres Photographiques in Bamako, Mali. She is currently continuing her studies at the Fine Arts University in Johannesburg. In her practice of photography, she uses her interest in sculpture, performance and video.
She is inspired by her family archives and creates a narrative where the past, the present, reality and fiction are intertwined. Using collage and juxtaposing photographs and film she weaves her own personal story with complex collective memory and attempts to deconstruct the exaggerated western stereotypes of an exotic Africa.
In 2016, her work was exhibited by the Walther Collection in New York in Recent Histories, at the Musée d’Histoire Naturelle in Le Havre in the exhibition L’Autre Continent: Artistes, Femmes, Africaines and at the inaugural exhibition of the Prada Foundation Milan Arts Complex in Give Me Yesterday.
