Sibusiso Mbhele, a visionary self-taught South African outsider artist who created sculptures, planes, cars and bicycles out of scrap-metal. “Based on his eponymous film, originally screened in 2000 at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Koto Bolofo’s first monograph documents a young, talented South African sculptor forced to flee his rural home—a full-sized, hand-built metal facsimile of a helicopter—which stood as an oddity against a background of traditional thatched huts in his African village.” Inscription on the dedication page. Light foxing to top-edge of pages. 1st Edition. Condition: Very good+. Dust jacket: Good+. Edge-wear with a few small nicks. Binding: Hardcover. Pictorial boards. Light edge-wear with bumping to corners.
