STATE OF EMERGENCY

29 August 2019

Johann van der Schijff is an artist living and working in Cape Town, South Africa. As an Associate Professor at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town, he teaches in the sculpture section of the school. He holds a Master of Fine Art (new media) degree from the Frank Mohr Instituut, Groningen, The Netherlands; a Master of Fine Art (sculpture) from the University of Cape Town; and a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Pretoria. His sculptural/new media works have been exhibited nationally and internationally.
 
Johann says; “This exhibition deals with memories as metaphors for the State of Emergency. It deals with flashback memories of my youth and the existential crisis of my adult life, it addresses middle age and melancholy and questions my role and place in society as a white man."
