  • GalleryOne11 111 Loop Street Cape Town, WC, 8000 South Africa (map)

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.

Noncedo Gxekwa

Painters:
Kate Arthur

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.
