Between Two Silences 2007 | Masters Exhibition at Fried Contemporary

20 January - 10 February 2007

The exhibition, Between Two Silences, consisted of a range of installation artworks that not only represented social commentary, but also attempted to bring about positive solutions to existing educational problems. Through the selective mixing of found materials and the more traditional sculptural techniques she created visual metaphors that represent delicate problems experienced by children in our existing education system. For example language barriers, illiteracy, and most importantly the total lack of resources.

The artworks Kwere Kwere and Illumination were bought by the National Library and forms part of their permanent collection. There was a write-up in the Beeld on the exhibition. The Exhibition travelled to Aardklop held in Potchefstroom and their local newspaper also wrote on the work.
