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.

Jessica Bosworth Smith

Jessica Bosworth Smith is an artist who consistently challenges the conventions and techniques of visual storytelling. Her works explore themes of memory, the esoteric and the uncanny by a process of thorough research and application of concepts associated with psychology and parapsychology.

Bosworth Smith believes in a fluid and multifaceted form of storytelling and, as such, is consistently exploring traditional mediums in experimental ways. She works primarily in ink, watercolour and pencil with final works often culminating in printed and hand-bound artist books.

Her recent projects have been inspired by the concept of “felt reality” synonymous with the Spanish American genre of narrative fiction termed ‘magical realism.’ The idea of a shifting reality co-existing with a peripheral fictional reality has led her to explore a series of strange Beings who dissolve and reconfigure endlessly across her images. Rorschach-like and mysterious, it is the viewer’s projections onto the figures that determines their benevolence or malevolence.
Jessica Bosworth Smith received her BFA from Rhodes University and her Honours in Visual Studies (Illustration) from Stellenbosch University (Cum Laude) as well as a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education. She founded and currently co-administers the Cape Town based womxn’sillustration collective Unblush. She has just published her first children’s book, “The Straw Giant & The Crow” through Imagnary House and recently spent a month on the Comic Blast residency with the Arteles Creative Center in Finland.

Exhibitions and Awards: 2017 – ‘Those Who Eat the Tail,’ ABSA l’Atelier Top 100 exhibtion; selected as one of Design Indaba’s Emerging Creatives.
