Medium as a Metaphor: art beyond the classroom

2 June 2024 - 28 July 2024

Participating: Miss. Anda Dodo, Mrs. Ayanda Mthethwa-Siwila and Mrs. Monique van Deventer

“Medium as a Metaphor: art beyond the classroom” is a group exhibition featuring three Pietermaritzburg-based, female teaching artists; Miss. Anda Dodo, Mrs. Ayanda Mthethwa-Siwila and Mrs. Monique van Deventer.
Beyond the classroom, they are occupied with making art that serves a narrative purpose. Their artworks engage in conversations which question personal experiences, tradition, conservation, culture, memories, femininity and their medium; clay. Their artworks appear to be familiar while imbued with symbolic meaning beyond its physical appearance. The artists suggest that the medium itself conveys deeper messages and concepts that enhance the understanding of the artworks. The artworks become more than just physical objects – they become carriers of meaning that evoke and communicate the complex emotions and ideas associated with their personal philosophies.
They offer unique discourse and thoughts surrounding sensitive issues seen in their unglazed and bare artworks, and this vulnerability is reflected in their handling of the medium.
