Hannalie Taute with her work
One of the exciting art prospects is an artist who has developed her art with a view of speaking her mind – loudly – and she does that with valour.
Hannalie Taute describes her work as in a constant state of evolution, which in itself mirrors many of the ideas behind her art. One central theme or unifying characteristic, she says, is the repeated exploration of identity and/or relationships within what she calls…

Thanks for the intro to this blog(ger). When I saw the Turbine Art Fair was moving I cast around to where it would go and decided on the silos, where the old(?) Carfax used to be and perhaps still is for all I know. Haven’t been to Joburg in ten years! Didn’t expect to find it moved to Illovo!
Thank you for reading and visiting her blog Petru! I’m not so familiar with JHB myself, so have no idea where the silos are that you mention. This will be my first visit to the Turbine Art Fair and Illovo 😉 Nervously looking forward xxx
The silos were famous for art events, parties etc. It’s on the ‘wrong’ side of the tracks from Newtown, where the Market Theatre is etc. If you have time, visit the Newtown area. The precinct is (still I should think) packed with art studios, coffee places, restaurants, the Bus Factory housing the Artist Proof Studios are there too and so on. I’m sure you’ll like it.
The silos sounds interesting. Thanks for the recommendation! …I’ll try and make a plan to visit Newtown. xxx
It will be far from Illovo, which is in the northern suburbs. The traffic in Joburg is such it can take an hour or more from there to Newtown. So, before you embark on the journey … have fun, whatever you do.
Yikes, that’s good to know. Thank you Petru …will do ❤
