Domestic Craft…a story….

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news

In Some circles the word ‘craft’ often invoke a

“hare-raising” feeling.

So usually in order for a work to be seen as “Art” it has to “Earn it’s stripes”.

Seven years ago I stopped “Horsing around”…

I am not a….

Remember, remember it’s November!….

Studio news

Yip, can you believe it! November is here already!

This month started on a high note, with lots of celebrations during the past weekend:

work in progress….

from Halloween, All Saint’s day, The day of the Dead and of course the Rugby World Cup.

I find it fascinating how sport can unite a Nation like it did this weekend.

“Sy is n bok vir sports/ She’s game” 2014 Cotton thread, batting and rubber (Private Collection)

Anyway from sport and celebrations to studio news….As you can see from “She’s game”, my fascination with hybrids comes a long way.

Talking about hybrids….

“Earn your stripes” 2019 Cotton thread, batting and rubber

…a vigor of hybrids, like “Earn your stripes” made their way to Tasmania and will be included in a group exhibition opening at the end of November, curated by Nicole O’Loughlin. I will post more info about this soon.

Also:

“Lovebirds” detail embroidered rubber, altered vintage photo 2019

I wish you a marvelous week ahead.

Until next time. xxx

Hitchhiking through the galaxy and a Familie-kielie

Studio news

Once upon a time I started hitchhiking through the galaxy and decided to stop on earth for refreshments.

 

So today I am celebrating: “The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and everything = 42 Today! (as explained by DeepThought in the book: “The Hitchhikers guide to the Universe” 😉 or here:

I hope that this year everything will start to make sense.

but what was the question again?

Spring chicken 😉

On another note I would like to invite you to a “Familie-Kielie! My upcoming solo exhibition at 99 Loop Gallery, on the 28th of August.

I do not use Facebook, but for those of you who do…the gallery created a ‘Facebook-event”, feel free to check it out:

https://www.facebook.com/events/1991322887634782/

99 Loop is delighted to showcase a solo exhibition by Hannalie Taute. Join us for the opening on Wednesday, August 28th. Refreshments will be served.

“They say that I am an invented character, then so too are my family, or are they?” With her fondness for the fabulous aspect of stories – the extension of games – of imitation of fantasy, Hannalie Taute presents to you the whole FAM-DAMNILY.

This exhibition is a continuation of Taute’s interest in and investigations of various relationships. The exhibition includes a series of portraits that Taute likes to refer to as a ‘dysfunctional family’.

This will be the first time that a selection of the artist’s sketchbook pages will be on display since she started working with rubber. These sketches feature some key ideas behind the strange business of family such as the act of copying and repeating, but also dissecting and dismantling along with reassembling. The act of repasting and putting back together again while enjoying the freedom to remake things differently – the hybridizing, upsetting the order of things. The fabricating, the aberrations, making monsters and naming them. Ultimately, this exhibition is a look into Taute’s compulsive activities. Please meet the whole fam-damnily, aimed at putting your judgmental faculties to the test.
_

“Hulle sê ek is ‘n fiktiewe karakter, maar so ook my familie, of is hulle?” Hannalie Taute het ‘n voorliefde vir die fabelagtige elemente in stories en ‘n liefde om, soos in ‘n speletjie, fantasie na te boots.
Dit is dan hoe sy hierdie FAM-DAMNILY aanbied.

Hierdie uitstalling is ‘n uitvloeisel van Taute se belangstelling in ondersoeke in verskeie verhoudings. Die uitstalling sluit ‘n reeks portrette in waarna die kunstenaar verwys as ‘n “disfunksionele” familie.

Dit sal die eerste keer wees sedert sy met rubber werk dat ‘n gedeelte van haar sketsboekbladsye uitgestal word. Hierdie sketse sluit sleutelidees in van die interessante familiedinamika, soos die rol van navolg en herhaal, maar ook die ontleding, analise en bymekaarbring van idees. Dis die uitmekaarhaal en heelmaak van idees, gedoen met die vryheid om dit anders te maak met ‘n totale nuwe eindproduk. Dit word ‘n nuwe uitvindsel met nuwe benaminge. Met hierdie uitstalling kry ons ‘n kykie in Taute se kompulsiewe aktiwiteite. Kom ontmoet die hele FAM-DAMNILY en toets jou kritiese vermoëns.

On that note…hope you all have a great week ahead.
