A group of South-African Artists from conceptual Art, Design and Craft disciplines were invited to exhibit together. The exhibition explores instances where the boundaries between art, design and craft flow into one another. It focuses on artists who reinvent traditional techniques of “crafts” like embroidery, bead-work, weaving, carpentry and paper cutting. It also explores the meaning and importance of craftsmanship in contemporary art practices.
In the piece titled: “Safe”
the rubber canvas consists of tiny hexagon rubber shapes which were stitched together by hand to form the basis of this work.
In the piece above “I’ll be watching you” you’ll notice that once piece of a big tractor inner tube were used;
and in the piece below “Don’t make waves”, rubber squares were stitched together with an industrial sewing machine to form the ‘rubber-canvas’
Anyway, so if you are in the Bloemfontein area, feel free to pop in at the Flux group exhibition xxx
