Statement

New possibilities found in the combination and flexibility of materials,  the myriad complexities of our world and the seemingly absurd juxtapositions and contradictions of life all keep me constantly rising to new challenges.

 

‘Disposable’:  Berlin B.AGL Art Fair April 2015

 

Through this process of enquiry and leading a double life in Switzerland and in South Africa, First World and Third,  I have pieced a multiplicity of things belonging to different civilisations and different eras together, binding their universality and resonance within the realms of philosophy, nature, history,and culture. The objets trouvé seem random to me at first and yet the works quickly grow and  realize the harmony of the chosen pieces.

Beside aesthetic explorations, I also strive to show and critique parallels between the self-serving politics of our throwaway, growth-driven neoliberal societies  and the perceived disposability of people and their aspirations in for example the  post-Mandela era of the new South Africa.

 

 

 

 

Materials:  Objects bought at junk stores and flea markets in Cape Town combined with modelling material obtained in Switzerland.
