Love in the time of….an invitation

This little alien would like to invite all Capetonians to a group exhibition:

Third time lucky and Aim higher

Love is like letting two balloons up into the air: The most interesting thing isn’t watching which one climbs fastest, but which one has the longest string. ❤

I will unfortunately not be able to attend the opening, but for those of you who can make it….ENJOY!

Dear Mother City…(Minutes to Midnight)

Studio news/blog

Dear Mother City, (aka Cape Town)

I visited you earlier in October, and I must say it was an experience I wouldn’t forget.

The energy in mid-city is quite contagious and at the same time exhausting, and the traffic intense. As a small-town girl, I think I could not handle it for more than a week, but I suppose one can get used to it.

Your inhabitants were very supportive, kind, generous and made me feel welcome.

I even spotted this guy in one of your museums and he laughed his ass of at me for feeling so overwhelmed:

And I almost lost my head to a hippo…

Luckily my friend made me a concoction of some Bach-flower remedies for the nerves.

and I channeled some horse-power with a Mary Sibande sculpture:

I did not see and experience half as much as I wanted to, but I did have a blast at the opening night of my solo exhibition Minutes to Midnight at 99 Loop gallery!

A big thank you to everyone who came to the opening night, and those who couldn’t make it to the opening, the exhibition runs until the 27th of October, so please feel free to pop in.

P.S ever wondered why Cape Town is known as the Mother City? Well, if you follow this link there’s 6 reasons why.

 

Cross my heart: e-book

Art portfolio- my work

I am back home and currently finding my rhythm  and routine again after a lovely time in Cape Town.

I had so much fun at the opening night of my solo exhibition: “Cross my heart” (which opened on the 10th of February)!  Thanks to everyone who helped in front and behind the scenes.  I also had a chance to catch up with some old friends, and made some new ones!

I will post some images of the opening night as soon as I can.

In the mean time Erdmann Contemporary gallery made this e-book of my work currently on exhibition until the 31st of March 2015:

I look forward to hear your thoughts.
