“Object” Exhibition, Curated: Elfriede Dreyer The Object exhibition forms part of an educational project of the CAP Institute for Contemporary Art Practice, presented by Prof Elfriede Dreyer. The workshop was organised through the South Cape Association of Visual Arts (SCAVA) and South Africa National Association for the Visual Arts (SANAVA). The works on exhibition were produced during a 4 day workshop. The theme of Object is concerned with the projection of meaning on the things/objects that surround us, including material culture and objects in nature. The choices of objects regarded interpretations of a doll jewellery an old floor brush, a skull, a burnt protea, light, green shoes, maps, trees, a chair, a mirror, a tortoise, a teacup, a statue and sticks. The artists worked with ideas to do with memory, history, culture, nature, psychoanalysis, Romanticism, alchemy, the Anthropocene and identity. They considered different styles and media, and pushed to move their work to a more conceptual level. The ”Object” Exhibition will run until 30 November 2023 in the George Museum. Please contact SCAVA for more information.
