“The mountains… The trees… even the streams are inhabited by spirits” So said a turn of the century traveler who coursed his way through the bewitched forests of the Venda tribe, found in the verdant north of South Africa. With its name emanating from the sacred lake of this warrior tribe who believe you can hear their ancestors drumming beneath its waters at night, Fundudzi by Craig Jacobs journeys into the forest in search of the supreme lightning bird. Abstract renderings of spears inform the collection, slashed on t-shirts and bleeding on knits while geometric markings characterize this modern African tribe. Traditional fabrics, with naïve repeat prints, are the canvas for modern silhouettes while still grounded in the land of the ancients.”
