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.

WAITING FOR

25.02 – 05.2016

08Mareli Esterhuizen

A solo exhibition of photography by Mareli Esterhuizen at Field Office, The Neighbourhood Edition, Woodstock in association with Salon Ninety One.

Artist statement:
‘Waiting for’ is a personal journey embracing the themes of trust, expectancy and timing. Waiting is an active process that relies on perfect timing, as well as having faith and a sense of expectancy in those seasons that may seem dead or best forgotten. Cultivating hope and perseverance in uncertain circumstances, without striving – is what makes one come alive.

I work quite intuitively, always trying to be truthful and sensitive to the subject matter. I enjoy juxtaposing elements which are out of their context together; and the tension that this creates. I also love the awkwardness that springs out of the imposed relationship between these objects. My style changes often and am a firm believer of spontaneity and following your intuition.

In the words of Li Hui: ‘Always experiment’.

Artist Profile:
Mareli was born in Cape Town and moved to the Eastern Cape at the age of 8. She studied photography at the NMMU and graduated with a B-Tech Degree in 2003. Her first solo show was held at Dirt Contemporary in Cape Town in 2004 as part of a residency programme. Since then she has been part of numerous group-exhibitions in Cape Town and abroad, including Sasol New Signatures and a digital display at the Louvre, Paris. The artist is currently living and working in Cape Town, working as Visual Manager at Chapel, running a part-time photographic school called School of Light while working on her personal body of work.

Mareli Esterhuizen

Mareli Esterhuizen is a photographer inspired by the narrative potential of form, colour and texture. Her recent works exploit the tension created by juxtaposing objects from unusual contexts within scenes dominated by vibrant colour accents. Her working process is very intuitive. Ideas may be sketched before shooting begins but the final product is informed by a spontaneous, truthful and sensitive approach to subject.

Esterhuizen’s inspirations and formats often change but her clean, contemporary aesthetic remains a trademark of her work. She cites Nick Knight, Robert Frank and Christian Boltanski among her influences. She likes to respond to the unexpected moments in her creative process when creating new contexts for seemingly arbitrary objects or exploiting the awkwardness of the relationships that emerge in her theatrical photographic stage. Clear references to fashion photography are subverted in her compositions that through a harmony of form function as playful meditations on the visual relationships in everyday life.

Mareli Esterhuizen works in Cape Town at Salon91 as a co-curator and runs a small photographic school after hours called School of Light. She studied photography at NMMU in Port Elizabeth and held her debut exhibition at Dirt Contemporary as part of a residency programme. She has exhibited in numerous exhibitions both locally and abroad.
