LUCINDA MUDGE- ARTIST STATEMENT

This new collection of slab-built vases draws inspiration both from the ceramics of China and the growing (and sometimes controversial) presence of the Chinese in Africa.

The powerful narratives from the Chinese immigrants and from the communities with whom they interact are told using the tropes, symbols and icons of the two cultures.

The title of the exhibition pays homage to the American jazz musician Sun Ra who developed a complex persona and an idiosyncratic myth-based credo that would make him a pioneer of Afrofuturism; and the Chinese text 牛屄死了 that appears in all the works literally translates as “fucking awesome to the point of death.”

Traditional African masks, a romanticised Afrofuturism and the universal human longing to be elsewhere are here mashed together resulting in a powerful and beautiful body of new work.

Lucinda Mudge’s extraordinary vases are getting more complex and demanding with rich and intricate detailing yet beneath their glimmering, sparkling surfaces is a world both familiar and faintly, futuristically alien which simmers with paranoia and tension.

Hannalie Taute Exhibition

 

Hannalie Taute -exhibition entitled "Implanted Memories" .

 

"For this exhibition, I have investigated memory and memory implantation where psychologists have developed techniques to implant false memories. These studies have proved how easy it is to distort memories of past events and to make people remember things that never occurred.

It focuses on the debate about repressed memories and the possible danger of digging for lost memories.

Imagining a false event makes it feel more familiar, and people mistake this feeling of familiarity for evidence that they have experienced the event.

Psychologist Ulric Neisser explains: “Misremembering and retrospective reworking of the past are a part of human nature; they go with the territory and they happen all the time''.''

Paula Louw

 

Paula Louw - exhibition entitled "Gently Does It" .

 

"The antithesis of all that one would normally consider a gun to be, the R5, revolver and R1 have been de-natured, are redemptive. Having been stitched together, they contradict any ideas we might have concerning these weapons in a traditional sense.

Colour, texture, shape, lines and curves, they could be the same deadly objects, but they present a very different aspect. They're loaded with hurt... wounds and tears have been stitched and mended, healing has been sought and rendered.

Sewing, normally considered the preserve of women, is the means of creation, causing these objects to take on a curiously feminine energy. They have been rendered completely harmless and present to us as soft, even rather cuddly objects, like a soft toy or teddy bear. They can no longer be loaded, cocked, nor the trigger pulled. They have been silenced. Paradoxically, we sense the deadly layers of meaning whose legacy history has conferred, whose dark weight drags these objects deeply into the softness of the pillow." - Paula Louw
