Meditative Moments

The Narrative for the show using creativity and the process of art making as a form of meditation and ritual to nurture and express the spirit

Meditative art is a spiritual practice. While ordinary art is basically interested in the end product, whether it is a painting or a sculpture, this type of art is focused on the inner state of the artist.

The process of creating is given importance and the creator acts as both an artist and a witness, attentively observing the process as it takes place.

Why do I create?

What is it for?

These are important questions that any artist who creates has to ask themselves. For those who practice meditative art, these questions are a starting point in the search for meaning. Inquiring “where does a creation come from?” and “who is creating” lead to a meditative state from which real art can be realized.

Letting go of old expectations is an essential part in the preparation needed to create from a meditative state of mind. Only when we are free to create or to let creation flow through us can we actually be truthful in our art. In this sense, meditative art can be seen as part of a spiritual path, but also as the end result.

This type of artistic practice therefore brings one to the present moment. It makes the creator aware and attentive, peaceful and quiet, connecting them to their higher self or a higher power.

We can learn to connect and surrender to it as a vital source of creativity. We can learn to do so with intention, practice, and guidance. This core essence, truth, pure love, and divine beauty is real and eternal.

All artwork make use of fumage a technique using fire to paint with smoke that is layered with mixed media.

We end off our month long show series SAME SAME with the launch of Show 3 of 3.

SAME SAME Launch Three: 6 September 2018 The urban geographic will be explored in the last phase of the exhibition and again, shift perspectives of how we see ourselves and others within our surrounds.  To consider commonalities within diversity among us, as we all have a need for a sense of “home” and extending the feeling of ‘being home’ from within ourselves to our fellow humans. We showcase the beautiful faces of our beautiful Home. Location Photography: Patrick Hamilton
Conceptual summary:
This THREE show collaboration, aims to challenge pre-conceived often judgmental social labelling and shift perspectives. Our humanity and shared commonalties build empathy and insight to acknowledge that we are all actually SAME SAME.

Show 1 saw 4 photographers stage, portray and capture the same unknown subject to place a pre-detremined narrative bout who and what they pose this person to be.
Photographers: Hylton Boucher, Teri Rogers, Noncedo Gxekwa, Luke Kitchen


Show 2 displays 4 Portrait Painters translating these 4 photographs, displayed in show 1, into paint- again adding their own perspective of who and what the person in the photograph is about.

SAME SAME launches the second show in it's 3 show series.
2/08/2018 saw the launch of a photographic portrait series where 4 photographers displayed their own portraiture, as well as all having portrayed, staged and captured the SAME unknown subject- to show how pre-determined perspectives shift from eye to eye.

Show 2: 16 August 2018 presents a different medium where participating Portrait Painters have to "render" the SameSame photographs of the unkown subject taken by our photographers, displayed in act one, in their unique style and medium to further add to their perception and interpretation of the person in the portrait. 

Show 2's opening on 16/08/2018 will also host a group ARTIST Talk/Q&A from the participating artists and photographs who have taken part in the SAME SAME series thus far.

Photographers:
Hylton Boucher
Teri Robberts
Luke Kitchin
Noncedo Gxekwa

Painters:
Kate Arthur
Lioda Conrad
Joff Carter
Oda Tungodden

This will be a sponsored event.

ON THE SAME SAME SHOW CONCEPT:
We celebrate our individuality and perspective of self and others past the idea of ‘how’ our specific labels tell us to.
It is often that our focus as a society is on what separates and classify us into different categories and stereotypes, which is further compounded by social conditioning and labeling.

With SAME SAME a collaboration between a group of young and established artists, we try to shift the perspective to what our commonalities are. We propose that it is possible to celebrate our individuality and perspectives of self within a framework of humanity with similar common needs- which too, need to be respected and acknowledged. SAME SAME ignites the light to shine on our individual vulnerabilities, perspectives, stories and experiences that“if shared”, will allow us to SEE each other and acknowledge that we are all actually SAME SAME.

SAME SAME: show 1 of 3

GalleryOne11 launches a 3 show series titled SAME SAME. Our 02/08/2018 event launches show 1, which displays the work of 4 Portrait Photographers. All 4 Photographers have the space to display their own portraiture, alongside a group collaboration where each photographer has had to capture, stage and portray the same subject, unknown to them all personally, by placing a pre-judged perspective upon the subject about who and what the subject, is all about. We challenge these pre-determined perspectives to encourage the extension of 'feeling at home' from within ourselves to other people.

SAME SAME ignites the light to shine on our individual vulnerabilities, perspectives, stories and experiences that “if shared”, will allow us to SEE each other and acknowledge that we are all actually SAME SAME. 

The SAME SAME series will continue on 16/08/2018 and 30/08/2018- with these pre-determined perspectives being translated and portrayed through different mediums.



Our Participating Photographers include:
Hylton Boucher
Teri Robberts

The Politics of Sex: a Group Exhibition

The Politics of Sex: a Group Exhibition

 ‘The Politics of Sex: a Group Exhibition’

Opening First Thursdays 07 June 2018 6:00 pm at Gallery One11

 

Centuries of oppression and the demonization of sex and expression has caused conflict throughout global communities. Contemporary practitioners have come to aid our communities as mirrors of our time and of mass popular culture, emulating societies downfalls and disobediences; deliberated taboos and patriarchy.

 As our attitude toward sex have become inclusive rather than taboo with time, Contemporary practitioners continue to include the conversation of sex within current discourse and studio practice. Although tentative at times, the topic of sex is none the less an important one considering the widespread circulation of the female form; the human body and the regulation of pornography in mass media for example. The dialogue generated between consumer driven culture and the visual arts sector exposes how censoring the human form can be complicated and contradictory when one deliberates how mass media has infiltrated our communities and oppressive structures.

The exhibition brings to light artworks previously censored or ultimately challenge whether their practitioners’ and audiences observations are under threat from main-stream forms of conservativism.

Felix Laband

Felix Laband is an electronic musician and visual artist born in 1977 in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa

Well known for creating light, emotional and minimalist soundscapes, Felix has also crafted an instantly recognizable visual language in tandem with his music. Using the medium of collage to design original artworks for many of his albums, Ep's and singular releases over the last decade. 

Felix's visual art making practice resembles an ongoing critique of popular culture as seen from within the entertainment industry. Using well know South African publications on potentially banal themes such as wildlife and various histories of colonialism, each collage represents the culture clash of native African culture and "white South Africa" as seen by someone living through the end of Apartheid and the beginning of a democratic state.

The first organisation that SaySay has chosen to support is Lalela (lalela.org
