TURBINE ART FAIR 2018

12.07 – 15.07.2018

Booth Number GH13 | Turbine Hall | Johannesburg

Salon Ninety One is a Cape Town based gallery, presenting works by emerging and established contemporary artists of all disciplines, passionate about developing a new brand of local talent. The gallery specializes in accessible contemporary South African Art, Design and illustration. Founded during 2008 by Monique du Preez, (Married name, Foord), curator and director to the space and its highly energized exhibition program. The gallery presented a selection of contemporary work ranging from painting, textile, print, drawing, and to a smaller degree photography and sculpture, with a special emphasis on collaborative projects and bridging the traditional divide between disciplines. Salon91 offered international and local collectors, as well as first-time buyers unique investment opportunities into the emerging South African art market.

Salon Ninety One exhibited at the Turbine Art Fair at the Turbine Hall in Johannesburg, South Africa, for the fifth consecutive year. Visitors to the gallery’s booth did enjoy works by their regular Salon Ninety One TAF favourites such as Amber Moir, Andrew Sutherland, Black Koki, Bruce Mackay, Cathy Layzell, Georgina Berens, Kirsten Beets, Kirsten Sims, Mareli Esterhuizen, Paul Senyol, Heidi Fourie, and Zarah Cassim, to mention only a few, as well as exciting newcomers to the fair, including Chloe Townsend, Berry Meyer, Katrine Claassens, Lili Probart, Matthew Prins, NEBNIKRO, Renée Rossouw, Sarah Pratt, Tara Deacon & more. Expect to see collage, painting, photography, ceramics, monotypes, reverse glass works, and drawings, executed in a rich winter’s palette, articulated with cool midnight hues, and bursts of warm jewel colours. The space did feature large and medium sized works by the various exhibiting artists, as well as two group projects, including a collection of diminutive works.

23.05 – 30.06.2018

An exploration of transience, process, and surface

Group exhibition featuring Georgina Berens, Amber Moir, Natasha Norman and Gabrielle Raaff.

 

“Amber Moir, Natasha Norman and Gabrielle Raaff have each visited Japan, while Georgina Berens spent some time in Finland. Quite clearly their experiences in these places have left an indelible mark on all of their practices.

While Japan and Finland are worlds apart, there is some commonality. In many ways, the two represent respectively the eastern- and northernmost reaches of human settlement. In these extremes, as much by necessity as by practice, human culture is closely bound by and deeply immersed in the elements and seasons, in their states and cycles.

Amongst all four of these artists is insistence on the transitory over the permanent, and on process over result. And there is a shared concern with surface, even where imagery comes to the fore, in all of their work. Importantly, there is also something intangible, elusive, something that resists a definitive conclusion in all of the results. This, I would contend, represents in part each artist’s response to the above-mentioned environments.”

[Excerpt from an introductory essay written by Paul Edmunds, May 2018]

Georgina Berens

Georgina Berens makes quiet prints that are immaculate reflections on place. Her scenes ring with the presence of unseen dramas, both past and future that play out off stage. The gentle traces of a wondering subject speak of the need for structure, however ephemeral or symbolic, within an exploration of the unknown. Her works capture that moment where the self has just left or is about to emerge.

In her latest collection of lithographs, Berens reimagines the internal dislocation that comes from being in a new environment. The works were made while she was on residency at the Ratamo Printmaking and Photography centre in Jyväskylä, Finland. Throughout the series, she positions her images as reflections of the child-like desire to create impermanent homes within a place of imaginative exploration. A tent, a tree house, stacked logs – so permeable and flimsy – are safe harbours in the face of the the darkness that reaches in from every corner.

A labour-intensive carefulness is characteristic of Berens’s works that belie any presence of this labour in the final image. A precision of marks and harmony of composition provides the impression of containment, allowing the works to ask the subtle questions:  ‘Who will I be in this place?’ and ‘What will this place come to mean with me in it?’
