CAPE TOWN - WHATIFTHEWORLD GALLERY
Opening: Wednesday 24 October 2018 at 18:00
Two Solo Exhibitions
Maja Marx’s abstractions start with reference to the real. It is important to her that she literally ‘finds’ the lines and compositions from which her paintings originate as she moves around in her world. The scattering of planes within the flattened form of a trampled object, a cluster of lines in the undergrowth, a composition in the dust under foot; fleeting moments and discarded objects provide her with ‘found’ lines and ‘found’ compositions. These are documented and mapped onto her canvasses with exactitude and care. This is a translation from the referential into the formalist that delivers onto her canvas a scaffolding of curious lines that sit on its surface as found objects. It is a scavenging act aimed at freeing the painter from the automatic marks and intuitive strategies of her own hand and the mimetic mark-making of the painterly tradition. It is an act of gathering that serves to bring a language of suggestive line to her canvasses that is ‘taken’ from the visual, lines that were brought to the canvass like bundled branches, like gathered wood.
Qab'Imbola by Buhlebezwe Siwani
In Siwani’s new body of work, she interrogates the historical entanglements between African spirituality and Christian belief systems, and specifically, the role women play in the practice, position and power of religion. Siwani’s exhibition, which includes performance and video installations, reflects the necessity of healing within the contemporary moment. Her art practice ruminates on the inter-generational trauma experienced in South Africa’s current condition. In doing this, she calls for action against exploited labour, human capital, economic migration and disparity, racial segregation and gender politics.

A social-cartographer, Goldblatt’s life’s work spanned 60 years of vigilant looking, learning and sharing through photography. Woven through the resulting photographic resource, and importantly in the texts and interviews offered by Goldblatt as companions, is an indirect portrait of the photographer himself:
