Tankwa Artscape Exhibition

2019

Romania

The group exhibition of Tankwa Artscape Residency 2019 - held in the remote Tankwa Karoo (South Africa)  -was hosted in Romania as part of Contemporary Nature. Exhibiting the photos of the Tankwa within the whiteness of a wintery Romania creates strong contrast with the dry and arid images shown.

Dwell in possibility exhibition / 2019

Centenary Art Gallery, UFS, Bloemfontein

South Africa

1-19 July 2019.

A group exhibition where the curatorial rationale was to 'dwell in the possibility', after Emily Dickenson's poem I dwell in possibility. I imagined the possibility of felled trees still existing, much as humans experience the presence of phantom limbs.

Each trace is the frottage of a physically felled tree: a topography of circular Arboretum life.

The in-between / solo exhibition

2019

AVA Gallery,  Cape Town

South Africa

4 - 26 April 2019.

In The In-Between I explore, through the action of gestural drawing, the idea of in-between spaces and the invisibility of the space between Self and Other. Likening the in-between space as an imaginary geographical space, it is within this interstitial space, these boundaries, that the fragility of empathy might be visualized.

forward? forward! forward ... exhibition  

2018/9

Stellenbosch University Museum,  Stellenbosch

South Africa

5 December 2018 - 30 April 2019.

An exhibition that re-imagines the human and the human relationship to knowledge into the African future, asking questions around inter-disciplinary and collaborative knowledge.

 

STEMSpeak (2018) poses questions ways in which human-to-human communication will take place. Working with two circular spheres covered in Braille (a tactile medium), connectivity might instead happen through the non-human form of digital speak.
