WEERBERIG – WEATHER REPORT
Aardklop National Arts Festival, Potchefstroom, South Africa

 

"Our landscape is not an eternal constant, it is mutable, constantly changing and being re-negotiated. In South Africa we have our very specific history to contend with. Land, ownership and national identity is integral to any understanding of the South African landscape. How did we and how do we posit emotion and meaning onto the landscape? Ours is a fraught history and land issues still play an important, often divisive role in our current social and political space. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Land-Act. This piece of legislation provided necessary armour for the division of land and people in South Africa. We are still dealing with this and it has left a permanent scar on the South African psyche." – Luan Nel (Curator)

A one-off, original drawing scratched into exposed photographic paper titled: A FARM ROAD, SOMME was created for this group exhibition.
