Works Forming Part Of This Group Exhibition In Some Way Encompass Threads Or Strands Found In, For Instance, Textiles And Paper. 

The Collection Of Works Examines The Tensions Between Notions Of Connection, Deconstruction And Unravelling. On The One Hand, The Same Threads That May Connect Things Can Also Cause Them To Unravel And Be Deconstructed. From A Different Point Of View, Certain Things Might Require Partial Unravelling Or Complete Deconstruction For Them To Form New Connections And Take A New Shape.

In This Group Exhibition The Prints Of 15 Historical Landscape Artworks Are Framed As If It Is The Painting Itself. But Instead Of Only Showing The Ways In Which Early Twentieth Century Artists Depicted The Landscape, This Exhibition Also Brings Other Artists To The Conversation. Contemporary South African Artists Were Invited To Depict The Landscape Through Their Own Lens, By Using The Landscape Prints As Art Material Or Reference. Consequently, The Historical Prints Are Positioned In Relation To Contemporary Perspectives Of People Who Currently Reside And Work In The Country, Experience The Landscapes In Different Ways And Notice Different Things. Land Has Multiple, Strong Political, Socio-Economic And Ecological Underpinnings – The Narratives Of Which Are Never Neutral. Shaped By Memories, Myths And Narratives, Land Is An Object And Site Of Dispute.

Bringing A Variety Of Artistic And Conceptual Approaches Of More Than 30 Artists Together, Viewers Are Invited To Consider How Representations Of Land Are Always Constructed Rather Than Natural Objective Documentations. Because By Oneself, One Cannot See Everything. As The Russian Philosopher Mikhail Bakhtin Argued, We Need Other People To Show Us What We Cannot See Ourselves. @Dini_Vdw

Preller’s Images Are Carefully Extracted From The Haphazard Pictorial Archives Left To Her By Time And Circumstance: Home Movies, Family Albums, All Kinds Of Visual Marginalia (Invariably And Emphatically Photographic). 

These Reconstructed Images Are Anything But Neutral, Despite The Deadpan Silence Of Their Finely Worked Surfaces. They Are Charged With Discomfort, Disbelief, Displacement And Distance Brought Along By The Passage Of Time. 

They Chronicle Ordinary Lived Moments Of Individuals, Paused And Rewound, Interrupted Narratives, Lost Stories. It Is Their Very Ordinariness Which Makes Them Extraordinary. @Karinpreller

Lifting Of The Veil Is A Selection Of Artwork By Talented Young South African Artists Who, During The Past Two Years, Used The Power Of Social Media To Make Their Art Known. It Was Through The Two Curators Spending Time On Various Social Media Platforms That These Artists Were Discovered And The Veil On Their Artwork Was Lifted.

This Exhibition Is An Inspiration To All. It Is A Reminder That No Matter The Adversities You Encounter, It Is Only Through The Continued Belief In Oneself And Of Following One’s Passion, That One Will Overcome. @Mstudiocommunity Absa Art Gallery

“The Mapula Embroidery Project Is An Initiative That Was Started In 1991 In The Winterveld, A Peri-Urban Area About 40 Kilometres North-West Of Pretoria In South Africa. 

The Winterveld Has Long Been Home To People With Scant Resources And Limited Opportunities To Earn An Income – Trying Circumstances The Project Was Set Up To Address. Indeed 'Mapula' Means 'Mother Of Rain' In Setswana, Connoting The Bringing Of A Harvest And Good Fortune. But Covid-19 Brought With It A New Set Of Challenges In This Community, And That Complicated The Project’s Capacity To Support People. 

The Exhibition  Includes Hand-Picked Mapula Products Showcasing The Art Of Storytelling Through Embroidery.&Quot; Mapula Embroideries @Mapula_Embroideries @Ujartsgallery

This Dialogue Attempts To Delve Into The (Un)Reality Of The Underlying Strata Of The Psyche. Here, Mythology And Concepts Of The Numinous Are Used As Devices To Gesture Towards An Ineffable. This Process Is Supported By The Agencies Of The Process Of Making, The Qualities Of The Auras Of Materials, And The Artefact. The Artefact Is Understood Not As A Product, But As A Continuous, Process-Driven Tool That Simultaneously Traces A Path Into, And Out Of, The Inner Realm. @Dirkbahmann  @Waynematthews23Skidoo

As Its Starting Point, Rich In Fibre Focuses On The Materiality Of Artworks. Fibre Is Often Understood As A Thin Thread, Strand, Or Filament From Which Plant Or Animal Tissue, Cloth Or Minerals Is Formed. For Food To Be “Rich In Fibre”, It Needs To Be Less Refined And Processed To Maintain Its Natural Fibre. As Such It Has A Certain Raw And Natural Quality To It. However, Foods High In Fibre Are Considered Difficult To Digest. 

The Unravelling Of Certain Preconceptions, Theories, Long-Held Beliefs And Assumptions Into Their Raw And Essential Form, Can Similarly Be Difficult To Stomach. But While Strenuous To Consume, Fibre-High Nourishment Helps Food Pass Through The Body. High Consistency Of Fibre Is Thus Beneficial Despite The Initial Challenges It May Pose To The Body Or Mental Faculties.
