More Than We Can Bear

3 July 2021 - 31 July 2021

Walkabout: Saturday 31 July 2021 at 11:00 - 14:00

The Bag Factory is pleased to present More Than We Can Bear, a solo exhibition of new work by Joe Turpin. Produced over the course of a year long residency at the Bag Factory Artist Studios, this body of work deals with themes of memory; mourning and history in relation to the contemporary. Narratives of history extend into mythology and stories exploring personal identity; culture and oneness. "I am interested in how my position finds itself in a post-modern South African and world context.”
Joe, who was a 2018/19 Cassirer Welz award Top 3 finalist, works in expanded painting and mixed media installations, where he extends the canvas and mixes differing elements together.
