Land Rewoven / Land Herweef

The exhibition comprises a considered body of work by MJ Lourens in conversation with selected paintings of JH Pierneef from La Motte Museum’s collection, inspired by the notion of recontextualising the latter well-known oeuvre within a contemporary dialogue.
The exhibition explores the interpretation of land by two South African artists from different generations, whose work could broadly be classified within the same genre. Lourens’ expansive land- and cityscapes composed of skies, clouds and industria, pierced in instances by interjecting elements, invites the viewer to join this exchange of ideas surrounding themes of geographical place, memory and identity, read in relation to Pierneef’s work.
