In legal jargon, “material representation” refers to a convincing statement, information or explanation made to a person to induce that person to enter into a contract or to take a decision, which s/he would not have done without such persuasion. In other words, it is the particular aspect of a contract which renders it appealing or agreeable.

With this in mind, BRUNDYN + GONSALVES presents Material / Representation, a summer exhibition diverging between two thematic streams: Materiality and Representation. Without explicitly dichotomizing, the selection of artists has been informed by the prominence of one of these two streams within their production. Viewed in this way, emphasis is placed on the idiosyncratic ways in which each artist has applied these themes to their work (what could be called their “material representation”) allowing these traits to come palpably to the fore.

Sanell Aggenbach, Beth Diane Armstrong, Kevin Brand, Tom Cullberg, Keith Dietrich, Frikkie Ekstein, Alex Emsley, Liza Grobler, Elizabeth Gunter, Gina Heyer, Matthew Hindley, Carla Liesching, Dillon Marsh, Mohau Modisakeng, Emma Nourse, Matty Roodt, Chad Rossouw, Jan van der Merwe, Zwelethu Mthethwa & Louis Jansen van Vuuren, Ernestine White and Mawande Ka Zenzile

The exhibition opens on Wednesday 28 November @ 6pm – Facebook event page – as part of Art Week Cape Town.
