Bets Taute and the dinosaurs
Today the 16th of January would have been my mother’s birthday. If she survived the car crash 19 years ago, she would have been 59.
I wish I could share the news with her that I have been nominated for a KykNet Fiesta 2015 award for my exhibition: Rubber ever after in the category for:” Best accomplishment in Visual Art”!!!!
This announcement was made last night: see here: http://kyknet.dstv.com/2015/01/15/vyfde-kyknet-fiestas-gaan-groot/
I am honoured to be nominated alongside fellow artists: Diek Grobler, Gerhard Marx and The Little Marionette Company!
So yes, today is kind of bittersweet …..but thanks for letting me share it with you.
Thank you Neil Nieuwoudt for making the best of the images we had at hand.
Note to self:
Next time get a professional to take photos of the work and the installation
Maybe even take a video to capture the atmosphere of the exhibition and the clock ticking in the background.
but all in all I’m happy to have all of the images in one place.
A while ago I wrote here: https://hannalietaute.wordpress.com/2014/05/27/lights-camera-action/ that I’ve been interviewed by the television program DeKat TV.
I have received the link for the youtube for those who have missed the live version.
I would like to thank Melanie Tait the editor for the link. Thank you Greta Petersen (presenter) and Jorrie van der Walt (camera man) for their patience since this was a first for me. I would also like to thank The Erdmann Contemporary Gallery for the use of their premises.
Ladies and gentlemen…without further adieu:
Article in the Cape Times newspaper today written by Steyn du Toit
I must admit that its a lovely feeling seeing an article in todays newspaper written about my exhibition at the KKNK art festival (almost 3 months ago). It keeps the memory alive.
