Installation images of the exhibition, Cross-Currents, showing at David Krut Projects Cape Town from 31 July – 25 August.
Cross-Currents, showing at David Krut Projects Cape Town from 31 July – 25 August 2012, presents a selection of works that draw on ideas of the sea, literally – as in, how do we relate to the sea and how have we related to it over time – and metaphorically – what does the sea stand for and how do we extrapolate the psychological implications of the idioms that we’ve developed around the ocean. Because thoughts take on such varied forms, the exhibition does not present any particular conceptual take on the sea. What emerges instead is an appropriate sense of reflection and contemplation that is as difficult to contain as the ocean itself.
Cross-Currents includes work by Jake Aikman, Lien Botha, Stuart Cairns, Abrie Fourie , Justin Fox, Damon Hyland, Stephen Inggs, Carla Liesching, Robyn Penn, David Southwood, Katherine Spindler, Jessica Webster, Alastair Whitton and Niklas Zimmer.
