99 Loop is pleased to be kicking off the new year with two shows. Rory Emmett will be returning to the gallery for a solo exhibition while Cow Mash will be showcasing a presentation of new works. 
HEWN by Rory Emmett
"This exhibition comprises of painting and installation elements. In the past months - in what’s been a difficult and formative time for many, I’ve been exploring various creative approaches in working with paradoxical ideas of solidity and malleability in surface and extending these concepts to form. These visual enquiries have been cathartic as they’ve allowed me to further explore ideas of nationalism, identity, labour, value and materiality within painting and art-making processes more generally. The abstract and figurative fragments on show serve as relics of ancient traditions that have made their way into a tumultuous present moment, yet move towards a constant state of formation to be reexamined." - Rory Emmett
"In this mini body of work, the hide (cowhide) is metaphorically imagined as a layer of clothing humans hide in. I use the Sepedi traditional attire as inspiration for variations of attires worn by the works. Clothing is interesting as an archive of cultural transformation. Through clothing we can seek and investigate the origins of trends, the adaptations of living, and through this the developments of culture. Thus: ‘hide and seek’ the game of tracking culture and exploring personal fingerprints through clothing."- Cow Mash
