Hello Cape Tonians,
I have a brilliant friend from Rhodes who goes by the name Carla Liesching. She's an (legitimate) artist who is visiting Cape Town from New York, where she works and lives, to do an exhibition at Brundyn + Gallery. The exhibition is called Nihiliphobia: Expeditions into the unknown. It's a series of photographs and prints that explore the relationship between geography and human identity. Says the artist: “My work investigates the ever-more complex ways that humans and their geography collide. I respond to the impacts of globalization and the erosion of our faith in dominant systems of knowledge, searching for new ways of realizing the self within this unstable terrain.
The exhibition starts today and ends on 13 March.
