Stevenson Group Exhibition


Stevenson’s latest Cape Town exhibition explores the boundaries of sculpture with various works by local artists questioning the traditional meaning of the discipline. While these works share a sculptural premise in their conception, they aren’t all sculptures in the traditional three-dimensional sense. Together, these works aim to expand the conventional definition of sculpture. Visuals by renowned South African artists Lerato Shadi and Kemang Wa Lehulere showcase the deconstruction and making of sculptures, questioning the very essence of what constitutes a sculpture. Lerato’s work shows her slowly crumbling a slice of chocolate cake before pressing all the crumbs together again to form a triangular slice that resembles the slice of cake, even though it clearly isn’t the same anymore. Other sculptors showcasing their work include Claudette Schreuders, Jane Alexander, Wim Botha, Nandipha Mntambo, Nicholas Hlobo and Conrad Botes. Viviane Sassen and Lebohang Kganye, who work with photography to construct their sculptural images, will also be represented at the exhibition. The exhibition opens on 28 November 2013 from 6pm until 8pm and runs until 11 January 2014 at the Buchanan Building, 160 Sir Lowry Road, Woodstock. The gallery is open Monday to Friday from 9am until 5pm and on Saturday from 10am until 1pm throughout the holiday season, except on public holidays.
