Installation view of my work in the group exhibition at Millennium gallery

So, a while ago I invited you to the opening of a Women’s day group exhibition at Millennium Gallery (Pretoria).

Today I would like to share some photos of the opening night, or those of you, like myself, who couldn’t be there.

A big thank you to fellow artists and friends who did attend the opening, and for sharing the pictures with us.

And for those of you who couldn’t make it to the opening but live in the Pretoria region, you are invited to a walkabout at the gallery tomorrow:

Best wishes for a great weekend!

Reminder: Opening tonight and you are invited!

The Awesome Womxn exhibition 2019
a group exhibition curated by

Dr Adéle Adendorff

Dr Rory du Plessis
on Friday 2 August 2019 at 19h00

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (2014) explains in her book, We should all be feminists, that ‘single stories’ curtail and inform our thinking, ‘especially about Africa.’  Adichie urges us to ‘unlearn’ the lessons of our youth and instead foster new narratives where we may all strive to be as we are.

Awesome Womxn is a group exhibition curated by Dr Adéle Adendorff and hosted by the Association of Arts Pretoria in celebration of Women’s Month 2019.

The exhibition aims to make visible alternative, polyvocal and multiple stories around the intersectional category, womxn.  Artworks from thirty artists working with various materials and subjects offer a platform where we may expand our imaginations beyond the normative categories of gender and race to project new possibilities for ourselves and others.

The exhibition will be opened by Dr Rory du Plessis who lectures in Visual Culture Studies at the University of Pretoria and is also the co-editor of the accredited journal, Image & Text.

I am delighted to invite you to two groups shows in which I am participating this month! One is in Australia and the other Cape Town….

First up:

HEROINE at MContemporary in Australia:

Frida Kahlo had it – a defiance and confidence that made her the twentieth century’s first ‘selfie superstar’. Georgia O’Keeffe had it – a brazen and innovative palette that confirmed her as the ‘Mother of American Modernism’. Tracy Emin has it – her frank and provocative art exposing an inventory of unconventional womanhood. The ‘it’ is boldness – a determination to speak, without fear or fancy, of the power of the female voice in public discourse.

In celebration of the dynamism and influence of this conversation, .M Contemporary announces the inaugural Heroine Exhibition, to take place in Sydney from March 7th to 24th, coinciding with International Women’s Day 2019. The Exhibition brings together emerging and established Australian artists with a series of renowned international names, each a daring and adventurous identity in women’s art.

BLOODLINES: IMAGINED HISTORIES at Deepest Darkest in Cape Town:

For the bloodlines: Imagined Histories I was inspired by two vintage photographs which I found at an Antique shop in Stilbaai, Western Cape. I do not know the people in these photographs or their history. I gave them a face-lift so to speak by replacing their unfamiliar faces with familiar ones from popular culture, in this case The Incredible Hulk, and renamed him The Incredible Hunk.  I also used a lace-skull stitched unto rubber to resemble Rip van Winkle, who fell asleep and woke up 20 year later. I imagine them as family members, and wonder what my life would be like if I knew them personally.

So on that note…I’ll leave you with this quote by Oscar Wilde:

“Two men look out the window. One sees mud, the other see stars.”
