SALON I

16-19 April 2015

A 19th century salon-style pop-up exhibition

curated by Ann-Marie Tully

 



SALON I, a 19th century salon-style pop-up exhibition curated by Ann-Marie Tully and Andrea Rolfes is back! Once again we are bringing together a select grouping of highly collectable emerging and established South African artists at affordable SALON I prices!

This will be the third incarnation of SALON I. The first and second SALON I exhibitions were staged with great success in July and October 2014, also at the Upstairs@Bamboo project space. View previous and current exhibitions on our facebook page:
FaceBook Page for SALON 1


This SALON I represents a new chapter in this initiative: mini SALON I. These focused groupings including work by a much tighter selection of artists allows for the more intensified showcasing of work by each represented artist.

These exhibitions represent an artist-led and artist-centred ethos.

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.

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.

Child in play - don't disturb

Playtime is probably the most important activity in a child's development. When you find children at play there should be a sign 'Don't disturb'. This is when children are learning through play - the cognitive advancement, socialisation and interaction is formed. Play promotes flexibility of the mind and is recreation and relaxation at the same time. Good, meaningful toys encourage your child to learn through play.

Toys for all ages 0 - 99 at Childsplay, Kinderspiel's new outlet at Bamboo Centre, Rustenburg Rd/Cr. Carlow bridge/Westcliff Drive, opening hrs: Monday to Friday 8.30 till 5 and Weekends 9 till 4.
