Daniel Naudé | A Decade of Seeing
For a decade, South African photographer Daniel Naudé has practised capturing and perfecting moments of stillness in nature. In his latest exhibition, A Decade of Seeing, he shows a critical selection of works from his past projects and his latest, never before seen works of Xhosa cattle on the shore of the Eastern Cape of South Africa (2018).

There is a mutual "now-ness" to this collection of arresting human-animal gazes, mediated by the camera. In total, they read like a remarkable series of ecstatic, intensified meeting points in which we query what it means to be alive, locked in momentary register with another sentient being.”

'ZOO' is an exhibition of the last works produced by renowned sculptor David J. Brown before he died in 2016.
The collection has been put together by Brown's wife, Pippa Skotnes; his brother-in-law, John Skotnes; and Martin Wilson.
