On Wednesday the 9th of May at 18:00 White Termite by Liza Grobler opened at the Brundyn and Gonsalves gallery in Cape Town. The exhibition draws loosely on Eugene Marais’s book, Soul of the White Ant as well as many of Lizas’ own thoughts and ideas. There are many recurring themes in each work which help to tie the executed exhibtion together to make it a piece in its own right. Below are a few photos taken just before the opening. I have had the privilege of assisting Liza for close to 3 months now with both this exhibtion and the Mooiuitsig to Mooi Uitsig artventure in Hangklip Baai in March. If you’re in Cape Town I highly recomend see-ing this show.

For the past few weeks I’ve been working with artist Liza Grobler and photographer Hannah Paton on HAWK (Hangklip Art Week). The aim of the event was to bring together artists from an urban environment (Cape Town) and rural environment (hangklip BAai) to exhibit and showcase work together outside of the gallery which has becoming a traditional space for viewing art. Without disempowering the idea the gallery HAWK aims to break to boundaries and make art more accesible to the public.
MORE PICTURES COMING SOON BUT JUST FOR NOW…
