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.

Lili Probart

Lili Probart is an artist, illustrator and educator pondering the seemingly impossible beauty and occurrences of the natural world. Her works engender a return to the childlike curiosity of a younger self, a self still able to indulge in wonder and mystery from a space of appreciation rather than fear or indifference. Her works are miniature collage explorations of an intimate and magical world that draw on elements of real world events and landscapes to create imaginative alternatives.

Probart employs the playful juxtapositions inherent in the collage process and incorporates a mix of mediums such as watercolours, pastels, fairy dust, sandpaper, pencils and charcoal into her works. She sees the spontaneity of mark making and layering in her process as a way of building a picture with a story. The themes in her works continue to be inspired by her childhood question, “where does everything come from?”

Her visual explorations of multi-layered mountain vistas and imaginative visions of a future or life hereafter make gentle comment on the human custodianship of Earth and the great infinity of the cosmos beyond our planet’s atmosphere. Probart’s intimate realities offer deep imaginative ponderings of the invisible forces at play in our natural world.

Lili Probart was born in Keetmanshoop in Namibia. She graduated with an Honours in Sculpture from UCT’s Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2011. She currently runs her own illustration and bookmaking initiative called millibook.
