As a response to the concept of holding memory, this exhibition of ten Cape artists invokes questions of what memory is, where it lies, who are custodians of memory, whether real or imagined, personal or collective…
As each artist draws from their subjective and fragmented memories, a distinctive collection of works results, where this residue, residual recollection and a particular energy has been distillated. New perspectives are brought to bear, through certain subject matter, by the manipulation of paint by the movement of the artist’s body, through the gentle beating of the clay in a coil pot. The brushstrokes and mark making become a record of the individual and in a way begins to record a new embodied memory, where the artist’s interior world finds expression externally.
