Funktional Exhibition

FUNKtional: a group exhibition of innovative designers and artists that combines quirky creativity, inventive designs and fresh perspectives – an event not to be missed on Pretoria's art scene. Local artists will include the likes of Retha Buitendach, Sybrand Wiechers, Izanne Wiid, Gina Schoeman and Grietjie Lee. Inspired by the well-known idiom 'form follows function', the collaborating artists give everyday objects a funky twist, transforming their functional uses into a contemporary work of art. Ranging from furniture to delightful clocks and playful light fittings, the artists deal with themes around nature, the relation of self to the natural world, and the reinvention of purpose. The exhibition will be opened on 12 April by architect and author, Pieter Mathews, at the Fient Lifestyle Gallery at Duncan Yard. The event starts at 6.30pm and the exhibition runs until the end of April.
