This year we are once again participating in the annual Cape Town Art Fair (CTAF). We are thrilled to be showcasing works by:
Aïda Muluneh, Endale Desalegn, Diane Victor, Faith 47, Mischa Fritsch, William Kentridge and Senzo Shabangu.
Also available for viewing will be works be Deborah Bell, Maja Maljević, Mongezi Ncaphayi, Robyn Penn and Mary Wafer.
For David Krut Projects, the CTAF is an opportunity to showcase a selection of artworks in varying media, representative of the mix of well-established and emerging contemporary South African artists with whom we collaborate on an ongoing basis.
Highlights of this year’s presentation are:
A selection of photographs from Aida Muluneh‘s new project The World is 9:
Featuring 10 works from the series, inspired by the words of her grandmother, “the world is 9, it is never complete and it’s never perfect”, Muluneh reflects on her past nine years spent in Addis Ababa. This phrase has been a mantra for Muluneh, bringing forth lessons in humility and contentment.
A new etching in silver and black by Faith47:
The Psychic Power of Animals is an ongoing project stemmed from large-scale murals of swans done by Faith47 across the globe. The idea behind these large, but delicate artworks is to try and infuse a soft and graceful presence into cities, recreating a sense of nature within an urban architecture. Faith47 has managed to incorporate these extensive works of art into the form of an etching consisting of silver ink on black Hahnemühle paper.
Paintings from Endale Desalegn‘s latest body of work, created during his second residency with David Krut Projects in Johannesburg:
Desalegn’s oil paintings form part of a previous exhibition with David Krut Projects, titled Two Social Pacifiers which presents the artists perception of capitalism and socialism. It is a profound meditation on the ways we perceive everyday objects in light of the social structures that dictate how we relate to the world.
