Corporeal forms on display at Goodman Gallery

Silence calling from one continent to another  is the upcoming exhibition presented by the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg. The exhibit features ten artists whose works contain or consider corporeal forms, in either direct or more poetic ways.

The title of the exhibit is derived from a phrase included in William Kentridge’s large drawing Love Songs from the Last Century.  Kentridge has reworked the drawing for this exhibition. The text comes from William Kentridge’s processional opera The Head & the Load and refers to mutual incomprehension between Africa and Europe. The paradoxical nature of this phrase speaks to modes of communication, and the difficulty often encountered due to cultural differences, distance or geography.

The works included in the exhibit expand over a range of mediums, including animation, by Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum, photography, by Jabulani Dhlamini and his mentor David Goldblatt, and mixed-media textile work, Georgina Maxim and Ravelle Pillay.

The exhibition will be on display from 9 October to 10 November at the Goodman Gallery in Rosebank, Johannesburg.
