GRAVITY – A VISUAL EXPLORATION

Dani Loureiro, Cassandra Leigh Johnson, Tess Metcalf, Nina Torr, Mariëtte Bergh, and Maaike Bakker, together with Salon91, present an all-female illustration & multidisciplinary exhibition themed around the idea of ‘Gravity’, a natural phenomenon few have managed to escape. Playing on the idea of opposing gravity, defying it, and also being fascinated by it, the group intends to explore the polarities of destruction, inversion, and attraction. Utilizing a broad range of materials, ‘Gravity’ will be interpreted and expressed in ways unimagined up until now…

Two Person Exhibition – Candice Ježek & Jade Klara.

The Witching Hour is an exploration of the magical and secret spaces of the world. Artists Candice Ježek and Jade Klara use a whimsical and powerfully feminine style to create rich narratives of unexpected yet somehow familiar themes. Expressed through various mediums of painting, sculpture, and print, they aim to move the viewer to a place of both sweetness and sorrow. The witching hour is a visually stimulating, diverse and powerful showing of the reflections of these two artists’ lives.

BEAST IN MIND

18.01 – 11.02.2012

A solo exhibition by Elise Wessels

Beast in mind is an intuitive visual interpretation of the Shadow archetype, as defined by C.G. Jung. While it is proposed that the Shadow may be partially linked to primordial and irrational animal instincts, it is also considered to be the seat of creativity. This concept became the departure point for a series of works by Elise Wessels, which were inspired by South African creatives in whose lives and work the Shadow played a significant role. The use of hybridity is intended to simulate a visual – or even an actual – conversation between the psyche and animal archetypes. With Beast in mind the artist hopes to offer the viewer a key to understanding the intuitive language of the Shadow.

Elise Wessels works as an Illustrator in Cape Town. After spending two and a half years at the Am I Collective studio she now works independently. She completed her Visual Arts Honours degree through the University of South Africa.
