Beguiling : The Self & The Subject

– Sponsored by the Irma Stern Trust –

Curated by Kirsty Cockerill

“In Beguiling, contemporary works are juxtaposed alongside works by Irma Stern. The relationships between these individual pieces offers a surface reading that is formal in nature, calculated to entice the viewer to review current artistic strategies that utilise the body in relationship to those of the past.”

The Exhibition venue, Cape Town’s Town Hall [1905], is the building that, Nelson Mandela, gave his monumental, historic first speech, 4 hrs after he was released from prison (Victor-Verster Prison, Paarl, @ 4:14pm. 11.2.1990 – 64k away)

“Mr Mandela, the deputy-president of the ANC, appeared on the balcony of Cape Town’s City Hall to speak to the 50,000 people assembled outside at 20:00 local time.” [BBC]

Comrades and fellow South Africans, I greet you all in the name of peace, democracy and freedom for all. I stand here before you not as a prophet but as a humble servant of you, the people. Your tireless and heroic sacrifices have made it possible for me to be here today. I therefore place the remaining years of my life in your hands….
Nelson Mandela

The room he stepped out of, onto the balcony, to be seen by the crowd for the first time, is one of the rooms used in the exhibition
[BBC News footage]

Apologies
Apologies to the artists whose work I have photographed with out your permission & have used to lure people to the exhibition – I was in photography mode & not able to write down all the names of the images I took – I will return in writing mode & update with your name & work title – you could leave your details as a comment and even write about what you were thinking when you created the work!

If you hold the curser over an image most have a subjective note that appears on your screen

We bumped into each other as they were rushing to catch the dwindling crowds on the next beach -They broke into song & drumming as they patiently posed for me – what a powerful sound – It gave me goose bumps
Such dynamic young men – Filled with optimism and determination to create a better life for themselves and their families. Delightful to witness their enthusiasm and energy & their love for their art. These young men look one in the eye with confindence and pride
I hope they get to see how amazing they look!

The building is very photogenic & close up it’s impressive – Green Point stadium, 68K seater – R4.7 billion to build, very controversial – And from Milnerton its way too big [was told that central government are paying for most of it – by most esteemed cape town council official]

To enlarge any image click on it & to return to thumbnails use the back arrow

I recommend you look at the workers images who have spent over 2 years building the massive structure – there’s a glint in their eye – I think they feel proud of what they have created – swaggerists – init

A sense of fulfillment and joy is the crystallization of all the effort – each drop of sweat, each tear – expended to reach that moment. Life’s inherent creativity, its dynamic vitality, is brought to the surface only through the strenuous exertions of a life of consistent action.
