  • Lessons in transformation_

    Lessons in transformation_ is a recent exhibition in the upper gallery at the Michaelis Galleries, University of Cape Town 5-20 May. The exhibition was set up as a site for conversation around my creative practice over the last eighteen years. There were various prompts for starting a conversation about my practice from photographic and video documentation to painting and collaging actions. On the 12th May I did a painting performance that also provided an entry point and experience of an aspect of my practice, namely painting live from multiple and moving visual media.

    I am holding conversations about my work in the upper gallery at the Michaelis Galleries, Hiddingh Campus, University of Cape Town until the 20th May. Through various digital and physical prompts for conversation, I intend to gather material towards a publication on my practice as visual artist and educator.

    Back in Cape Town for almost three weeks and only getting to process documentation from my final exhibition for Nosadella Due artist residency, Bologna Italy now…

    What an experience! A lot to process… Seven weeks, Venice, the biennial, Bologna for a month and brief visits to Milan, Florence, Padua and Rome. I will be feeding off this experience for years to come. Thank you to The Africa Centre for making it possible, to Nosadella curator Elisa Del Prete for being such a brilliant host. Also to the directors and staff at Atelier Si (esp. Tihana Maravic and Giovanni Brunetto) for hosting a performance, workshop and exhibition at the theatre. And to all the wonderful people I met at Nosadella and along the way.

    During my residency at Nosadella Due I first did a performance, data CAPTIVE AUDIENCE(Bologna) (see previous blog post) a week after arriving as part of the launch of the season program at theatre, Atelier Si. I ran a weekend workshop in the middle of the residency and then on the 25th October I held a small exhibition again at Si to show the work I had created prior and during the residency.
