COLLABORATION

 

THE FOX, THE OWL AND THE ROBBER

27.01 – 27.02.2016

Sarah Pratt Solo exhibition

My role is that of social anthropologist in an imaginary village/town where strange creatures live – there will be 5 central characters, probably a fox puppet, an owl man, a dog,,,,,,, and hopefully the rest will flow from there.(really just a way of continuing to make the kind of work that i like making and a way to incorporate all the things that interest me – houses, strange creatures, birds, dogs, specific trees, flora, etc.)

I really enjoyed making that ply installation for the window, so was thinking of making some smaller things – like the little puffin that was flying over the scene and just attached to the wall – kind of a spin on those kitch 70’s flying ceramic ducks.

DOG DAYS

21.01 – 14.02.15

Solo Exhibition by Sarah Pratt

Dog Days
Vanishing into the green light

Sarah Pratt presents a body of work that is inspired by the life and death of her dog, Laptop.

The death of a loyal companion invokes feelings of pain, isolation and nostalgia.

The process of remembering seems to root us in another time and place, a timeless, intangible realm.

Intrigued by ‘The Wood Between the Worlds’ in C.S. Lewis’s ‘The Magician’s Nephew’, the artist’s work also alludes to her imagined existence of a strange, green in-between place where her deceased dog now resides.

Using pen, ink, gouache, collage, gold leaf and paper cutting techniques, she focuses on producing a series of works that are an exploration of life, death, memory and place.

AWAY

29.01 – 22.02.2014

cover

Artist: Sarah Pratt

Born in Zimbabwe in 1972, Sarah Pratt holds a Master of Fine Arts degree. She is a highly skilled printmaker, specializing in copper etching, linocut, collograph and monoprint. After spending 10 years in the print department of Michaelis as a part-time staff member , Sarah decided to devote most of her time to making her own work. She is an extremely prolific artist, constantly creating, and participating in a number of exhibitions. Sarah works from a group studio in Observatory, where she is currently interested in ink and gouache on paper, paper cut-out work, monoprints and drypoints.

29 January – 22 February 2014

Opening Night Wednesday 29 January 2014 at 18h30. The exhibition concludes Sat 22/2/2014 at 2pm.

About Away:

Toward or into non-existence. While travelling from Cape Town to Dubai, Manchester to Wales, London to Singapore, and finally New Zealand back to Cape Town, Sarah Pratt presents a body of work both inspired and dictated by a ‘Journey’. ‘Away’ invokes feelings of being apart, elsewhere, afar and astray. Travel exposes us to other worlds that, despite our scheduled timeline, seem to exist in a timeless realm. While moving in a systematic manner from point to point, Sarah Pratt harnesses her travel experiences, both physical and psychological, to inform the nature of these works. Using pen, ink and gouache, she focuses on producing a series of works that are an exploration of other-worldliness, works that illustrate another place and are created in unfamiliar environment

The I am Water Ocean Conservation Trust aims to do this through education and awareness, spreading the love and protection of the oceans through introducing South Africans from all walks of life to the ocean environment & important conservation issues.

Marieke Prinsloo-Rowe, best known for her beautiful swimmer sculptures, which were installed at the Sea Point Promenade until recently, will be the guest speaker at the opening.

Salon91 &  I AM WATER will be hosting a beach clean up on Sunday the 20th of January 2013 at 10:00 am. We would love for the Salon91 community & everyone who appreciates nature, art or the ocean to get involved. Please contact us on info@salon91.co.za if you would like to help out.

SHOES FROM CHINESE SHIPS

01.08 – 01.09.2012

Group exhibition featuring the work of Gabrielle Raaff, Lisa Firer, Katrine Claassens, Wessel Snyman, Colijn Strydom, Danni Liang, Elsabe Milandri, Fan Cheng, Sarah Pratt & Sunette Viljoen.

Curated by Katrine Claassens, Monique du Preez & Candice Jezek.

 

About ~ Shoes From Chinese Ships

Walking on Strand beach near Cape Town one comes across a proliferation of shoes and other plastic debris from China scattered along the high-tide mark. From the survivors of a Ming dynasty shipwreck integrating into Kenyan society, to the story of a giraffe being welcomed to China as unicorn in the early 15 th century, the history of shoreline arrivals and trade between Africa and China is a long and often mysterious one.
Taking the sea, the vehicle for the original contact between China and Africa, as a point of departure Shoes From Chinese Ships features both emerging and established Chinese and South African artists. The show is a conversation in painting, drawing, installation and sculpture between the intricate and increasingly complicated relationship between Africa and China. Interrupting the commercial import/export relationship and replacing it with an integrated one that allows for a more personal discourse with a faraway place, the exhibition includes a collaboration between some of the South African artists involved and students from the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. Living and working all around the world the artists explore the mystery, depth and intricacy of exchanges brought about by trade between these two countries throughout the centuries.

About ~ The Artists 

Working from China, South Africa, Germany and France the artists selected for Shoes From Chinese Ships are all of South African or Chinese nationality. The artists were selected for their visual and conceptual sensibilities, particularly the elements of nostalgia, fragility, mystery and displacement that tie their works together…

Students from The China Academy

Students from The China Academy of Art are participating in collaboration with the South African artists listed above. The China Academy of Art is the most influential academy of fine arts in China with the most complete range of degree offerings and programs of study. It houses a diverse pool of artistic talent, with a focus on integrating theory and practice. Combining modern technical and cultural disciplines with traditional ones, the academy encompasses fine art, architecture, film and new media.
