HARE`S AN IDEA | IN DER HAAS (Carla Crafford and Guy du Toit) & ANIMALIA EX REBUS (Hannes Elsenbroek)

The Association of Arts Pretoria presents an exhibition and book launch by sculptor Guy du Toit and photographer Carla Crafford in the main gallery with an exhibition of Hannes Elsenbroek in the Black Box.  Both these exhibitions are held in celebration of World Art Day which takes place annually on 15th April.
 
Guy du Toit and Carla Crafford met at the University of Pretoria in 2005 where they have been lecturing respectively in sculpture, photography and new media.  Since then Crafford has often photographed Du Toit’s sculptures for exhibitions or other purposes.  Besides documenting sculptures, the two have collaborated on various projects over the years, both locally and in Europe (i.e. at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2016, SAADJIES project in Holland, and in France).  In March 2017, the book Guy du Toit Discovering the Object, produced by Crafford, was launched in Pretoria.
 
Hare There and Everywhere – the book that is launched at this exhibition is not a catalogue of hare sculptures.  Instead, the hares are shown as characters that tell their own stories.  Cast in bronze the hares are given tangible status and are simultaneously celebrated in the book as the narrators.
 
 
Hannes Elsenbroek, currently a visual arts student at the University of Pretoria, prefers to work under the figurative tradition and has a deep love of and affinity with the works of the Old Masters.  He uses paint to subvert their technical approach into something fresh and contemporary.  With his exhibition, ??Animalia ex Rebus??, he aims to portray the human experience of various animals through painting.
