BHEKA is a window space in ROOM Gallery & Projects founded by Refiloe Namise and Alexander Appolis.
It serves as a permanent micro-residency. BHEKA a space of interrogation, contemplation and occupation, where the public and creatives respond to what appears on/in/around the window space. This is the mode of thinking through the space and future projects.
The window exists as a mediated liminal space, between the gallery and the 'outside'. In essence, the 'interior' interacts with an 'exterior' through a distorted lens. This idea led to the naming of the space in terms of the idea of looking, ukuBheka (to look), Bheka, which translates to 'look', in isiZulu ukuBheka.
