Studio update- Winter 2021

Art portfolio- my work

Whew, July was a strange month: from billionaires in space, to looting in South Africa and more close to home = a broken appliances as well as a traffic fine. Let’s hope August will be peaceful, calm, and things working out without rushing;-)

work in progress

August is my birthday month and I am happy to say that some of my older work will be included in an upcoming exhibition which opens on the same day as my birthday! In celebration I will be giving away this ‘Chocolate bunny” from this exhibition to one lucky person.

This group exhibition is called: Thread(ed): Interlacing womxn in the 21st century, to be held at the Association of Arts, Pretoria from 13 August – 4 September 2021

More details to follow later

But here is a sneak peek:

I watched a beautiful movie on Netflix called: It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, which was inspired by an article featured in Esquire about Mr Rogers. After I watched the movie, I read the article, and I would like to share the following quote which really moved me with you:

Anyway, back to studio news:

The KKNK festival virtual exhibition Amplifica is still showing until the end of August. Here is a short video featuring the curator Dineke van der Walt talking about it:

and here is a video we made in my studio with the works in question:

That’s a wrap for now. Keep calm and keep warm until next time….

EUCATASTROPHE – The Cake!

Studio news/blog

Since it’s almost weekend, let’s talk cake!

Cake by Miche

This incredible cake (as seen above) made by MICHE for an EUCATASTROPHE added a special touch to the exhibition.

The team from MICHE noticed that I was a saddened by the idea of not having a cake at my wedding-themed exhibition (Eucatastrophe), especially since wedding cakes are a part of weddings since Ancient Rome. Even though the cake back then was more like a scone-barley cake, which were broken over the brides head during the ceremony to ensure good fortune and fertility. (for more on the history of wedding cakes see Gastronomica: the journal of critical food studies: https://online.ucpress.edu/gastronomica/article-abstract/5/2/69/46511/Wedding-Cake-A-Slice-of-History?redirectedFrom=fulltext

MICHE kindly offered to make a cake!

So I send them a video with a sneak peek/preview of the exhibition and we discussed certain possibilities, and this cake is a result of how they interpreted the work.
