This March, Goodman Gallery Cape presents a group exhibition of work in a wide range of media. Titled Editions, the show brings together photographs, sculpture, video/multimedia works, lithographs, linocuts and photogravures by a variety of South African and international artists, with the common thread that each work forms part of an edition.
Kudzanai Chiurai shows a new film from his State of the Nation series, last seen at Documenta 13 in Kassel, Germany, as well as a new photograph from the same body of work. New prints by Gerhard Marx and Walter Oltmann find them engaging with etching, lithography and woodblock printing in new and exciting ways.
Alfredo Jaar's photographs of Serra Pelada, an opencast gold mine dug by human hands in Brazil, are shown as color transparencies mounted in lightboxes, and sit in uneasy relation to Liza Lou's Gather (Forty), a sculpture made from gold-plated beads threaded and bound in a sheaf.
The exhibition includes new prints by Clive van den Berg and Diane Victor; photographs from Candice Breitz' recent Extra!, last seen at the Iziko South African National Gallery, and David Goldblatt's characteristically quiet colour landscapes; and a portfolio of photolithography by Moshekwa Langa.
