LALA LA
Walkabout: Saturday 16 February 2019 at 11:00 - 12:00
 
Lala la means ‘come rest here’ in Zulu. It is a thread that has run through many of the titles and works in Buthelezi’s previous work and is a theme she has explored intensively during the past three months. Lala la, come rest here, is something a woman would say to a lover, a mother to a child, a child to a mother, or a child to a father. It implies an attempt to offer comfort, reconciliation, and an acceptance of loss; while also exploring love and the idea of love as sacrifice, as something worth dying for. 
 
In terms of her feminist vision as an artist, LALA LA, come rest here, is also a place Buthelezi has created for herself – a place where she can be free from societal pressures to nurture, fix, and make everything ‘right’. “I am trying to create this atmosphere of rest where it doesn’t always have to be right. You can really rest here. You can talk about anything here. You can just be here. And I am trying to create that atmosphere of rest, not just for myself, but for the people who come see the show.”

JOHANNESBURG - DAVID BAILLIE GALLERY JOHANNESBURG
Opening: Sunday 3 February 2019 at 11:00
Big Bang and Butterflies
 
The exhibition title BIG BANG and BUTTERFLIES refers to a 3-D mounted wall sculpture by the American artist David Kracov on exhibition at the gallery. 
 
The work references the violent moments in comic books, reduced to words like ‘AARGH!’, ‘VROOM!, ‘POW!’, ‘SMASH!’ and ‘BANG!’ It is this removal from a portrayal of actual pain that gives this work of pop art its irreverent edge. 
The butterflies refer to a major work by Kracov titled The Book of Life, a reflection on the child survivors of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of 1986.

JOHANNESBURG - FADA GALLERY

Distortion to Reflection
 
Through memory Instagram images provide passages to significant emotional experiences. Each image takes me to a specific time and place. It is as though we look at one another through delicate glass bell jars. The glass can distort what is held inside. The glass can reflect oneself, show one’s insides cast onto another’s being, similar to colour on a canvas, similar in ways to recreating the inner-world in paint. If not a reflection, through undistorted glass, I seem to see a clear you and you see a clear me, we may still never know how our inner-worlds affect what we perceive. In feeling we collide, for moments, sharing what it feels like to be alive in all its brutality and beauty.
