Fingers In The Outlet
Date: 29 January - 9 February
Venue: ROOM + URBANART PROJECT - Space No 3, 70 Juta Street, Braamfontein, Johannesburg, 2000, South Africa
The exhibition consists of a series of ‘domestic investigations’ into the concept of Bricolage. It is a hands-on, exploratory practice that is performed within a domestic setting and through the objects and materials characteristic of this space. The primary intent of exploring this concept is to acquire a physical and conceptual understanding of these objects as mechanisms of expression. The title of the show, Fingers In The Outlet, is an allusion to the curiosity and inquisitiveness that is carried out with whatever is on hand. It refers to an interruption of flow or the creation of a space through intervention, linking up to the character of experimentation that enables this process.

Performing 'man' - Derek Zietsman
Date: 19 January - 2 February
Venue: Fried Contemporary Art Gallery & Studio, Pretoria, South Africa
t: +27 12 3460158, info@friedcontemporary.com, www.friedcontemporary.com
Performing ‘man’ falls within the ambit of social commentary, and the drawing style is therefore purposefully naturalistic, facilitating the legibility required of the conventions of social commentary, within the broad ambit of social realism. The artist’s intention is for the viewer to recognise the imagery represented and the social commentary intended as constructs of not only white male performativity, but also of constructed, indexical and self-reflexive marks on paper. The series of prints are themed from the artist’s lived experiences and observations of socio-political change in South Africa over two decades.
