In Memoriam: a South African dystopia
A master’s exhibition by Loreal Vos

GIVING EXPRESSION TO EXPERIENCE

1 August – 9 August 2015


Opening Tuesday evening at 18h30 on 1st of August 2015, on view until 9th of August 2015

Loreal Vos, a master’s student in Visual Arts at the University of Johannesburg, presents an exhibition which forms part of her master’s degree. The exhibition presents a series of photographs, paintings and drawings that form part of an installation around a central theme of a dystopian society that is based on current events in South Africa.

Vos’s exhibition is concerned with the concept of violent death in our contemporary South African society. The exhibition is based on a perceived lack of concern for the sanctity of life within South African society and it is the artist’s perception that South Africa is experiencing serious levels of social decay: “we, as a society, daily observe a decline of social values and little consideration for the sanctity of life, often leading to a form of desensitisation and/or apathy within society. In this desensitised society, I do not consider myself desensitised but am constantly disturbed at the relentless bombardment of images and reports of death and violence within the media and around me. My practical works therefore function as a form of catharsis, a strategy for engaging with my emotional response to the flawed society in which I live in order to control these intrusive thoughts.” Her artworks incorporate animal forms that are combined with human forms, evoking the bestial behaviour of perpetrators and the helplessness of victims.

Vos is a young, white South African woman from a conservative Afrikaans background living in post-apartheid South Africa. Her Afrikaans culture, especially the more traditional variety, has a specific aesthetic, arising from an amalgamation of European cultures. From this European heritage, and for the purposes of this exhibition, she focuses on the traditional aesthetics of seventeenth-century Dutch culture. Vos explains that she experiences a nostalgic response to her visual heritage, particularly the traditional objects found within her home. These include Delftware, comprising traditional blue and white Dutch ceramic items, as well as traditional Dutch silverware, crochet work, furniture and paintings. For this reason she is particularly drawn to historical Dutch still life paintings of the vanitas genre with their depiction of such traditional objects which they use for the purposes of allegory and metaphor. Within these still life paintings, the artists made use of visual metaphors which would convey the concept of transience and mortality. This aesthetic is what informs the content of Vos’s exhibition.

THIS is mosaic ART!

For the first time, the Mosaic Association South Africa (MASA)
presents a selection of their members' work

1-9 September 2015

Mosaic Association South Africa


Whereas it is widely accepted in the rest of the world, mosaic as a fine-art form is relatively unknown in southern Africa. Since 2009, MASA has presented an annual exhibition in line with its mission to encourage, develop and promote mosaic as an art form, challenging their members to produce work of a high standard in preparation for this exciting event—and this exhibition serves as an introduction to what has been created by MASA members.

Although isolated from the international mosaic fine art community, this has not prevented the local mosaic artists from participating in international exhibitions, competitions, publications and workshops. Mosaic Fine Art Portraits (2010) edited by Pam Givens and Irit Levy, featured South African artists Rikus Keyser and Elise van Staden while Mel Miller was invited to exhibit at the Mosaic Arts International Exhibition (2012). MASA members have attended mosaic workshops presented by Menossi and Orsoni in Venice and both Martin Cheek (United Kingdom) and Andjelka Radojevic (Serbia) have presented a series of well-attended workshops in South Africa.

This adjudicated exhibition, proudly sponsored by Douglas Jones, promises to deliver art created in mosaic that will astound and delight visitors. Exhibits will include not only portraits and landscapes, but also figurative and decorative mosaics. Prize-giving will take place on Saturday, 5th September 2015 at 10am with guest speaker, Moira MacMurray.

Black Coffee

Black Coffee

The key to the Black Coffee aesthetic is a combination of two polar opposites. The first is innovative thinking and inspirational conceptual beliefs on what it means to be South Afrian - particularly an Afrikaner with a rich heritage. Black Coffee has a quirky, deep and thoughtful approach to couture, to globalism and to a new African visual identity. To contrast with his fresh innovative design concepts, Jacques executes his process with meticulous attention to detail and a very traditional craft-like approach to the manufacture of Black Coffee couture.
