Emma Willemse l dis[place]
8 May – 1 June
dis[place] is a reflection of Willemse’s continued interest in the phenomenon of displacement and its effects. Working from her own experiences of displacement, she employs materials found in demolished houses to construct her installations. Alongside these she also exhibits print works created through a lengthy process of hand built collage, digitally edited and re-edited, and printed in the photogravure method, as well as monotype and ink & jik prints.
Group Exhibition l No Place Like Now
8 May – 1 June
Curated jointly by Emma Willemse and Tamzin Lovell Miller
No Place Like Now addresses questions such as:
- What is the significance of place in an era where technological reliance denies a sense of physicality in place?
- How do people relate to and experience place today and how does it contrast with experiences before our time?
- What are the historical, sociological and psychological meanings generated by place and space?
- What is the relationship between place and memory and place and identity?
This exhibition will run in the Upstairs Gallery from the 7th May (opening reception on the 8th of May) until the 1st June 2013.
In the Main Gallery we exhibit curated solo and group shows on a regular basis.
Here we show a wider variety of quality, contemporary works in a range of mediums.

“Using long prevailing cultural and spiritual idioms in India I have used the earthen lamp as a metaphor to create minimalistic installations of contemporary art that raises thought provoking questions on some of the key global issues that form the BRICS dialogue. It seeks to contribute significantly to the softer dimensions of human psyche to build up of sensibilities towards development of humanity and establish a more equitable and fair world that respects earth and the equitable and responsible use of its resources,” commented the artist Manav Gupta about the exhibition. “It is indeed a pleasure and an honour for me to be adding my drop in the ocean of South Africa and India’s rich legacy of cultural history and building more bonds between the two countries in the extraordinary commonalities of profound cultural heritage of the two countries,” -Gupta.
