Unathi Mkonto's residency at A4 coincides with the exhibition More For Less. AVOID, an installation of soft sculptures, takes place in the Reading Room and is accompanied by an artist-led workshop in which participants design 'wearable' artworks.

A multidisciplinary artist who works between textile and architecture, Unathi Mkonto was born in Peddie, Eastern Cape, and is now based in Cape Town. He studied architecture at Nelson Mandela University (then Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University) and later trained in fashion.
