I Surrender to Creation
27 November 2021 - 28 January 2022
Curated by: Ivy Rihlampfu
‘Each artist has their own set of techniques for creating art. Various factors influence the
creative process such as drawing from collective memory to create; using self as a mirror to
create; subconsciously creating borrowing from the daily life experience and the creator
submerging to reconstruct identity for self and beyond. These factors are everchanging and
the inspiration to create borrows comes from diverse sources. To the ambassadors of the
natural world, they allow us to glimpse the understanding of their creation, depending on
how much they give us.’ (Ivy Rhilampfu: 2021)
The exhibition attempts to examine and assess the various methods that young
contemporaries use to create works of art and required techniques to create. It derives from
self or a glance in the moment of creation the artist gives into pureness of the art creation.
It’s within this atmosphere that the artist surrenders to the art making process and where
new methodologies, personal growth and new ideas are known to incubate.
Through this application we get a better understanding of how the art is made and the different phases the artist enters in order to give us art. It’s about boldness, control and intention taking its cause. Mark after mark the artwork takes a life of its own. We are given a
front row seat by the creators as audience to engage.
RSVP is essential, COVID regulation as advised by government are enforced, entrance is free
