Lyndi Sales
18h00 – 20h00
Exhibition Opening
Join us for the opening of Lyndi Sales’s new solo show at
CIRCA. Lyndi Sales is a Cape Town-based artist. Previously
she has worked on a series of installations and artworks
that seek to investigate the circumstances surrounding
the controversial Helderberg plane crash. Although she
still makes reference to the event her focus has shifted to
ontological concerns and cosmology. Her constructions
made of intricately cut Perspex, paper and rubber often
shed light on the fragile nature of our existence and
temporality.

MERELY THIS AND NOTHING MORE
Rina Stutzer
Exhibition Opening
Rina Stutzer’s new exhibition continues her exploration
of the transience of things: of people, of land and
animals, of heaven and earth. Her work returns
consistently to the dualities of existence. Her work is
deeply personal but it is also inflected with the
complexities of living in Africa: a continent characterised
by constant movement and change. There are light and
dark sides to being in flux and to the feelings of unease
that this may cause; Stutzer’s work always engages
thoughtfully, attentively and poetically with their
intertwinement. For her dwelling means settlement but
also point of departure: a beginning, an end, and a
beginning again.

Pauline Gutter
Exhibition Opening
Gutter is the winner of the prestigious 2013 ABSA
L`Atelier competition. She was also awarded the
Helgaard Steyn Award for painting in 2011. Currently
Gutter’s layered oil painting, drawing, video art and
installation focus on identity and gender in terms of
media and cultural migration.

10h00 – 21h00 Operating Hours
Experience once off live printing performances by the
artists Chad Cordeiro and Nathaniel Sheppard III. Their
intention is to enhance and antagonise the idea of how
specialised labour is valued as opposed to how the
objects that the specialised labour produced are valued.
The subject matter of the print itself, a time card‚ will

further add to the process of print as specialised labour

ENTANGLED
Claire Zinn
17h00 – 21h00 Exhibition Opening
Entangled represents an experiment of sorts and a
reactivation of printing muscles. In the beginning it was
an endeavour to reinvent images from Zinn’s family’s
past. This morphed into a desire to re-imagine the static
images into variable imagery by layering and carving.

DREAMERS
Shirin Neshat
09h00 – 21h00
Dreamers has been conceived as a trilogy of video
installations that explore the world of dreams. This
exhibition debuts two new video installations, “Roja”
(2016) and “Sara” (2016) by well-known Iranian-born artist
and filmmaker, Shirin Neshat. These are complemented
by the video “Illusions & Mirrors” (2013) which were
shown at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art as part of the
first Biennale de Montréal in 2015. Conceptually each of
the three video installations revolve around single female
protagonists whose emotional and psychological
narratives remain on the border of dream and reality;
madness and sanity; and consciousness and
sub-consciousness; as they each face their own distinct
inner anxieties.

inspiration from writers such as Ben Okri, this exhibition
brings together video art and photographs that engage
with the fantastic. The fantastic, in this exhibition, can be
seen as a kaleidoscope of social experience in a prism of
politics, economy and governance. The works that are
featured are socially embedded and interrogate systems
of governance through offering glimpses of
often-overlooked brutalities in everyday experience.

Wits Young Artist Award

BRAAMFONTEIN
The newly established Wits Young Artist Award (formerly
known as Martienssen Prize) is born out of a need for
more than “change”. It is an urgent call for rethinking and
re-imagining what an Art Award means in a Pan-African
University which acknowledges the idea that
decoloniality is an embodied experience of the
postcolonial moment. This year not only sees a change in
the name of the award, but also enables further
interrogation by challenging the notion of artistic
excellence. We are interested in the search of an aesthetic
language that functions in a different way and advocates
for the development of ideas that destabilize
exhibitionary practice.

18h00 – 20h00 Exhibition Opening
For the first time, the photographs of anti-apartheid
photographers Benny Gool, Zubeida Vallie and Adil
Bradlow are brought together in a group exhibition.
From the early 1980s, these young photographers and
friends were to be found with their cameras
documenting apartheid South Africa, dodging security
police, taking part in protests and being detained on
several occasions. Their impressive collections show us
now, some twenty-two years after the first democratic
elections in South Africa, a vivid narrative of violence, loss
and injuries, the reverberations of which are subdued in
the rhetoric of a post-apartheid landscape.

CLOCKING IN
Chad Cordeiro and Nathaniel Sheppard III
11h00 – 12h00 Live Demonstration
10h00 – 16h00 Operating Hours
Experience once off live printing performances by the
artists Chad Cordeiro and Nathaniel Sheppard III. Their
intention is to enhance and antagonise the idea of how
specialised labour is valued as opposed to how the
objects that the specialised labour produced are valued.
The subject matter of the print itself, a time card‚ will
further add to the process of print as specialised labour
and print as commodity.

invisible. Using time, repetitive actions as well as stillness,
she questions `How does one create oneself?’

TWO ISLANDS
Gabriella Manglou, Yohan Queland, Thierry Riviere,
Sebastian Clain and Yannis Nanguet.
Exhibition Opening
The exhibition interrogates two very different islands, The
Johannesburg Art Gallery and the Reunion Island. It
seeks to explore the ‘island status’ of the gallery, a
European construct in the middle of Africa as wells as
Reunion Island, which is officially called “the France of the
Indian Ocean”. Two Islands seeks to explore ways of
developing south-south relationships in the Indian
Ocean as well as ways of JAG overcoming its contextual
isolation.
LA PART DE L'AUTRE
Thierry Fontaine
Exhibition Opening
Thierry Fontaine, a photographer, imagines his pictures
by observing around him the movements of the social
models according to the places where he is. The
movements of these models create meetings and new
contacts. The crossings which result from it become
INNER CITY & SURROUNDS
intermingled until they produce inter-breedings. These
contacts alter the established models, raising questions.
He stages them and photographs improbable, opposing
meetings from situations that he creates with model
characters, prepared scenes, sculptures and specially
made objects, organised exactly in a chosen context.

ongoing show in support of local artists working in and

intriguing platform on which to showcase video art and
reach a widespread audience. The video pieces form a
contrast to the usual subject matter that appears on such
a platform as the four artists have created works that
provoke curiosity and thought around their subject
matter.
