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.

Date: 24th November – 4th December
Time: Mon – Fri: 10am - 4pm

SaySay.Love is inspired by the resolve and resilience of the people in Cape Town, and South Africa.

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

SaySay has challenged his audience to donate generously to the causes he is supporting in an effort to educate the public at large around water scarcity, and to mobilise solutions around water preservation and management.
