Metamorphosis (Books of Transformations)

Opening: 26 October 2020 - 8 November 2020

The artists selected to participate in this exhibition continue to explore their own identity within the context of community, a sense of belonging and home. They do so by reflecting on their heritage, myths, legends and memory. We are beginning to understand that identity is predominantly influenced by socialization and collective memory. We also acknowledge that memory is fluid, subjective and inherently false. Identity could perhaps then be seen as a unique narrative derived from a collection of reference. This process of identity and personality formation also manifests in the individuals physical appearance as adaptation to society. As with Ovid’s poem style, this process of becoming an individual are chosen fragments curated to tell a unique verse/tale, which is often accompanied by themes of love, violence and relation to nature. 

Participating: Tanisha Bhana (Johannesburg), Bernard Brand (Pretoria), Daniël Hugo (Cape Town), Cow Mash (Pretoria) and Octavia Roodt (Johannesburg).
