Lyndi Sales

Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Lyndi Sales explores themes of perception and vision as well as connectivity. She strives to create in her audience a corporeal response – a feeling of being in one’s own body, to “bring people to their senses.”

In her work, Sales is invested in driving into the present, seeing it as a mysterious, elusive and mutable idea. Her most recent work has focused on a series of installations and artworks that seek to investigate the circumstances surrounding the controversial Helderberg plane crash, of which her father was one of the passengers. These constructions, made of intricately cut, pinned paper, rubber and other material which often shed light on the fragile nature of our existence, temporality and how chance plays a role in our lives.
