HEAT WAVES
SOLO EXHIBITION by Chrisél Attewell
Curated by Els van Mourik
 
The recent bodies of work by Chrisél Attewell, explore the vast world of the land in South Africa. Her art making has always been connected to the natural world in some way and for Chrisél Attewell the land functions simultaneously as a source of inspiration, a material resource, and an exhibition space. Using materials like earth, wind, water, fire, wood, salt, rocks, and sand, she places less emphasis on the objects but turns the attention to the experience of her work. Her artistic approach ties in with the conceptual art movement, foregrounding natural materials and the site itself, creating work that is engaging on the deeply relevant topic of environment and climate change.

PRETTY BRILLIANT
The magic of female stories
Curated by Els van Mourik
 
This exhibition features the work of 10 female artists represented by Berman Contemporary: Amogelang Maepa, Athenkosi Kwinana, Chrisél Attewell, Cow Mash, DuduBloom More, Hazel Mphande, Lee-At Meyerov, Mellaney Roberts, Natalie de Morney and Odette Graskie.
Berman Contemporary is a female-led contemporary art gallery in Johannesburg, founded in 2018 by Candice Berman and has a solely focus on the representation of women artists. Supporting female artists is something that has come naturally to the gallery and we are aiming to empower women in their artistic career. Our curatorial programme covers a multiplicity of issues that female practitioners are tackling today and is encompassing a broad spectrum of sculpture, painting, video, photography and installation.
