Black Humour…you are invited

Invitation

Fried Contemporary is proud to present a group exhibition curated by Dr. Johan Thom opening Thursday 30 August from 6pm-8pm.

Black Humour is meant to refer to idea of ‘Black Humour’ both formally and conceptually. In our contemporary South African context the term ‘Black Humour’ may be read politically too – even as the concept continues to make reference to the darker side of humour generally. In this way notions of humour and blackness may simultaneously be explored as a formal property of things, paint on a canvas, a traumatic situation, and conceptually as a signifier of race, sex, death, the unknown, the macabre and the laughable.

The resulting tension serves for a highly charged situation where politics, the (inter)personal and the practice of art-making all stand precariously balanced on edge. It is here where humour may cheekily intervene, deflating pretensions and momentarily leveling the playing field by introducing the unexpected, the as yet unthought possibility.

The entire exhibition is conceived as an installation in which artworks exploring different aspects of the concept of ‘black humour’ will be placed together in order to generate a dynamic spatial and conceptual dialogue. Artists forming part of the exhibition include:
Bumba & Andre . Cazlynne Peffer . Conrad Botes . Cow Mash
Dylan Graham . Hannalie Taute . Johan Thom . Raimi Gbadamosi
Ricky Burnett . Shenaz Mahomed . Vusi Beauchamp

Come hell or high water….you are invited

Dear friends,

This time next week my solo exhibition in conjunction with Marieke Krugers exhibition opens at Lizamore & Associates gallery….

TAUTE AND KRUGER INTERROGATES IDENTITY CONSTRUCTION, THE SUBLIME AND THE ‘OTHER’ AT LIZAMORE IN OCTOBER

Come Hell or High Water by Hannalie Taute unfolds around an exploration of the ocean as a metaphor for identity. Taute masterfully intertwines the notion of identity construction with other conceptual threads, often resulting in shrewd commentary on society and popular culture. This exhibition consists of Taute’s well-known work in rubber and thread. She uses recycled inner tubes with embroidery thread with the aim to make the medium of the piece interact with the subject matter in a way that forces the viewer to deeply engage and question the artwork. To enforce this interaction with the viewer, the titles of Taute’s works are ambiguous; they all refer to idioms about water (especially the ocean) that initiates a game with the viewer through a play of words, that hints to the social commentary each word interrogates. Taute’s Come Hell or High Water takes the viewer on a visual journey through the artist thoughts presented as metaphorical narratives about the ocean and water.

Marieke Kruger exhibition; Carceral Space II: Anticipating the sublime is centered around Kruger’s large-scale charcoal portraits that deals with experiences of the sublime. Through this body of work, the artist explores the transformative power of suggestion and the ways through which a certain presence can be contained and result in an experience of the sublime. The central focus of this body of work is the portrayal of the self and the other – in this case, prison inmates with whom Kruger interacts. Kruger explores the self and the other’s relationship to space – thereby creating a means through which the sublime in these drawings can be explored and subsequently have a transformative effect on the self and the other. “My suggestive portrait drawings, in essence, function as transformative psychological and spiritual self-objects which would, in certain areas, almost become abstract landscapes in which case the drawing trace itself would start functioning as an autonomous means of communication” Kruger explains.
