Searching for an Electric Peanut [Part II]

13 February 2019 - 1 March 2019

As part of Art Week Cape Town, Michaelis Galleries is
hosting a second instalment of Jonathan Silverman’s
Searching for an Electric Peanut, which will be curated specifically
for the upper gallery exhibition space.
Searching for an Electric Peanut is concerned with
the space between the virtual and the material - contrasting
the cold, alienating, beauty of the digital
medium on the one hand with the bodily, physical and
alchemical aspects of painting on the other.
The theme which ties the imagery in this body of work
together is of fragmented landscapes, lived through or
collected, which allude to a longing for a more direct
contact with nature.
Working with the sounds of composers and sound artists
Floy Krouchi and Remo De-Vico respectively, a
relative minimal aural accompaniment was created that
stays true to the dynamic nature of the visual components
of the installation– resulting in an unpredictable
flow of colour and form.
