As faithfully as ever, we’ve scoured the web for some beautiful new things to share with you for our weekly Oh Wow! round-up and as always, we had a lot of fun doing it! So…today we’re looking at some enchanting figures in dreamlike landscapes, portraits of fashion week models paired with scenes of the every day, and a psychadelic interpretation of Cape Town in the form of a hand-cut photographic collage.

 

ONEAgain and Again, a solo show by Nina Torr is opening on 30 October at In Toto Gallery.

 

blanket-deers

 

“Again and Again takes the form of a cyclorama broken into several parts. The world follows the journeys of a number of figures during a brief moment in time. There are the yellow dogs who just can’t get any rest, poor things. There are empty landscapes that don’t quite know what to do with themselves. Sleeping whales glide past along with travelling salesmen and some very docile suns and moons. Most of the animals are retired, but they try to keep busy. Sometimes we get an idea of what goes on even further behind the scenes, where things may – or may not – even be happening. Torr documents her internal landscape; at times it presents itself as fully-formed images. More often than not, they take the form of hallucinatory landscapes filled with mental debris. We see things near and far at the same time, again and again.”

THREE – Some tracks from lentegeur, an electronic music producer originally from Pretoria. The vast nature of Cape Town, where he now resides, has directly influenced his personal style of fusing ambient soundscapes and electronica infused textures with trip hop and hip hop beats.

 

 

 

 

FOUR – Mungo and Jemima have just launched an online store, coinciding with the release of their SS14/15 Lookbook. Shot by Caroline McClelland and featuring a rather adorable miniature potbelly piglet named Ben, it showcases items from their upcoming summer ranges from designers like Good Clothing and Coppelia.

We’ve got lots to show you in Ads This Week. First up, for DStv, a loving dad to 3 daughters tries to catch the rugby game on a Saturday afternoon; the hugely popular Cadbury ‘Triplets’ campaign gets a sweet extension; hearts are racing for Garmin; unexpected extra players take to the field in an ad for Bell Lager; Disprin recruits a lively church choir; Wellington’s sweet chilli sauce is personified; there’s a serious reminder from SARS; Total is depicted as a wonderland for an adorable little boy; the new Liberty ad is inspired by the origins of the company; and lastly Checkers provides a pair of quintessentially South African cameos from Nataniel and Mandoza.

 

DStv ‘Man Cave’ by Ogilvy Johannesburg and Darling

 

 

This ad for DStv by Ogilvy & Mather Johannesburg was directed by Darling’s Jeana Theron and tells the story about a father in a family of all women to show what’s included in a DStv Premium package (two TV stations at the same time, live streaming and  programs to download on your iPad.) All dad wants to do is watch the rugby after a Saturday morning’s shop – but all the women in his life manage to get to every TV before him. Jeana let us know more about how she answered the brief, “The biggest challenge to make the ad work was in the casting. I had to get the fine line between a dad who loves his family so much that he lets them do as they please – but not be perceived as a wimp and seem weak or hen pecked at the same time. This could make you dislike him, and I wanted you to have empathy for him.

 

I really feel we successfully achieved this – dad (Craig Urbani) was fantastic and is a superb actor. He pulled this off and had such great repot with his “family” because of his natural charisma. Similarly I didn’t want you to dislike the girls – there was the danger of this because they all take over the house and are inconsiderate to him. Again, we managed to cast really lovely girls and another superb actress in mom whose crying scene and skill with the children was also phenomenal. And then there was the little girl – the cutest child I ever did see.” Marc Algranti from Pulse had his team compose the track – which was inspired by Dean Martin’s.

 

The Cadbury Dairy Milk Triplets are named

 

CadburyCadbury Cadbury

 

Following the very popular Ogilvy & Mather Johannesburg and Velocity Films TVC ‘Triplets’ for Cadbury Dairy Milk, the brand launched a crowd-sourcing campaign over social media looking for joyous South African names to call the three singing, dancing unborn babies from the ad. With the announcement of the chosen names, Thabiso, Intokozo and Gcobani, the brand released ‘The Little Book of Joy’, a collection of South Africa’s most joyful baby names and their meanings.

 

Where were you when you last felt alive? King James II for Garmin

These two TV commercials make up a new brand campaign for Garmin titled: Where were you when you last felt alive?  The campaign is championed by their new action camera – the Garmin VIRB Elite and both commercials were filmed on location using the VIRB Elite camera itself. The VIRB Elite is the first action camera to include telemetry over video footage including heart rate, altitude, G-force, speed, distance, location, route and direction. It essentially makes point of view recording and viewing more real than it’s ever been. What makes these pieces different is that instead of the usual extreme sport footage we get to see so often from action cameras, we experience real and relatable human adventures and get to feel them too.

Total ‘Wonderland’ by Havas Worldwide and Bouffant

 

 

Bouffant director Marc Sidelsky, together with Havas Worldwide, shows the magical discovery and exploration of a TOTAL petrol station through the eyes of a young boy. The intention of the commercial is to create an emotive connection between the brand and the public; showcasing the TOTAL  station in a way that is sincere, enchanting and gently interwoven with a father-son tale. The commercial was edited by Marcelle Mouton at Deepend Post.

Liberty ‘Paycheck’ by FoxP2

After a lifetime of giving his all, the father of Liberty founder Donald Gordon retired on a paycheck of just R28. So, because Donald knew, all too well, the pain of watching his own father unable to afford retirement, he introduced Liberty Umbrella Funds to this country – a way for businesses of any size to offer their employees the retirement they deserve. The ad was directed by Riverstone Films’ Jeremy Holden for FoxP2, with post production by Searle Street Post. “To make the time-lapse sequence work, we had to shoot several layers of action with a motion control rig,” says Searle Street Post creative director and VFX supervisor Heino Henning. “With such a complex and VFX intensive project, we had to nail it in pre-production. So we partnered with Luma to create a previz of the entire time-lapse sequence. This served as the blueprint for the camera moves and timing of the various actions during the plates shoot.” Lead Flame artist Naomi Anderlini was assisted by comp artist Graeme Armstrong and Theuns van Rensburg.

Photographer Fundiswa Ntoyi is interested in capturing the stories behind the faces of her subjects to create beautifully intriguing portraits.

Fundiswa Ntoyi

 

Capturing the stories behind the faces she shoots is something that Cape Town based photographer Fundiswa Ntoyi is passionate about, which is why the majority of her portfolio is made up of beautifully intriguing portraits. Fundiswa says, “I love portraits, they tell stories without any use of words.” When shooting she is only happy with a portrait once she can connect with the image on a spiritual and emotional level, which is probably why her work is so captivating. We chat to her about her photography, her journey thus far and what’s next.

 

Tell us about your background and how you became interested in photography?

 

I was born, raised and lived in Bloemfontein until I decided to move to Cape Town last year November. I have a Degree in Communication Science but I have always loved photography. In high school I knew that I wanted to be a photographer, but I just didn’t have the guts to study it so I ended up doing marketing. Even before I got into photography I was always fascinated with other people’s photographs, always curious about how they managed to capture a specific image. I literally learned to take photos by looking at other people’s photography. Before I could even afford to buy a camera I was so obsessed with photography, all I did was google photographers. I then got a camera and started shooting.

 

Portraits make up the majority of your portfolio. Why is that?

 

It links to my art – I used to draw a lot in high school and most of my drawings were portraits. I used to draw portraits taken by other people but then I decided to capture them myself. I love portraits, they tell stories without any use of words.

 

What is it that you try to capture in each of the portraits you take?

 

I don’t try too hard when I take a portrait – when it’s the right one, I know. My heart tells me. I’m happy when I can relate to the portrait and see myself in it, on a spiritual and emotional level.

 

How has your style and aesthetic evolved since you first started taking photographs?

 

I am ever evolving, as every human being on earth. I am always trying to be better than my last shot.

 

Tell us about your other creative pursuits. 

 

I enjoy sketching a lot and, yup you guessed it, I sketch portraits. This helps feed my photography because I get to challenge myself. It pushes me to take better photographs because when I’m sketching I’m sketching photographs taken by other people, therefore my next picture needs to be better than my last sketch.

 

What are some of the challenges and triumphs of being a young creative in South Africa?

 

Challenges are getting paid. It’s challenging to find a way to make money from your art, but we never give up. Other challenges would be getting your name out there and if it is out there you have to stay consistent and to do that one has to constantly produce. It’s always rewarding when people tell me my work inspires them. One of the highlights so far has to be being featured in a book called African Lense by Aaron Yeboh.

 

Which local creatives inspire you to keep producing excellent work? 

 

Siki Msuseni

Mpho Mokgadi

I See a Different You

Khumbula

Nelson Makamo

Lazi Greiispaces Mathebula and many others.

 

What’s next for you?

 

Definitely an exhibition, which I am planning in my head. I have never worked on a full on photo series before and I have a couple of ideas that I have been jotting down. I also want to collaborate with other creatives. Johnson Maela, a great friend of mine, is a photographer and we will be working on a photo project together soon. Then I want to tell more compelling stories and I think I am getting there.

Maboneng’s Regeneration Shown in a TVC for Nescafe by Jono Hall http://10and5.com/2014/10/24/mabonengs-regeneration-shown-in-a-tvc-for-nescafe-by-jono-hall/ http://10and5.com/2014/10/24/mabonengs-regeneration-shown-in-a-tvc-for-nescafe-by-jono-hall/#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 08:21:49 +0000 http://10and5.com/?p=89960

A commercial directed by Jono Hall for Nescafe which illustrates the regeneration of the Maboneng Precint into the vibrant community that it is today.

We recently saw this ad directed by Jono Hall for Nescafe which illustrates the regeneration of the Maboneng Precint and happens to feature more than a few familiar faces. The brief from Publicis Machine, Jono tells us, was to create a commercial that would show how Maboneng sprang from derelict buildings in an unfashionable, even dangerous part of town, into the incredible vibrant creative and commercial community that it is today. And then, obviously, bring it back to the notion of how great things ‘start with a Nescafe’.

 

As it turns out, the task of showing the origins of a neighbourhood (especially one that is based on “urban regeneration”) that already exists is quite a difficult one. “You can’t just re-regenerate an entire district for the purposes of an ad,” Jono says. “But for me, the heart of it was always about showing a journey, a journey that might start with a building or a place, but very quickly becomes about people and how they intertwine through a neighbourhood and make it about what they do with it and how they experience it.”

 

The commercial begins with what is now MOAD (the Museum of African Design) but at the time was nothing but a large, neglected space. Here we see the actual people who are the driving force behind Maboneng including its developer Jonathan Liebmann, sitting around a ramshackle table planning what it would become. Jono and the production team took a bit of creative license to show people “restoring” the exterior of the Cosmopolitan Hotel (which is actually something they plan on doing). To make it feel richer and more authentic, the ad is layered with people who actually do things in the Maboneng district such as Anisa Mpungwe from Loincloth and Ashes, and Samson Mulugetu who runs the salsa dancing on Sundays.

 

“The bottom line, is that I love Maboneng,” Jono says. “I run a pop-up restaurant there once a month, some of my closest friends have lived there from the start and I’ve been going there since it was just one building and no-one really knew what it was. In preparation for the commercial I basically went and hung out on the streets for weekend after weekend after weekend, and then tried my damnedest to make the ad feel like what it was that I was seeing every time I went. Hopefully, hopefully a tiny little bit of that happened.”

Fashion designer Anisa Mpungwe of Loin Cloth & Ashes has teamed up with fashion retailer Mr Price (MRP) once again for a new collection celebrating Africa that launches next week.

 

Anisa’s journey with MRP began back in 2008 when she was announced the winner of the Elle Rising Star Design Award, an annual competition in association with MRP. Since her win, Anisa has established herself as a force within the local fashion industry.

 

For this collection, Anisa aimed to create a classic brilliantly-styled range both affordable and accessible. She says, “I recently traveled through Africa where I was seduced by the energy of African cities. During my travels, I attended a wedding in Nigeria where I noticed how people embrace colour. They weren’t afraid to be loud and expressive, both vocally and in dress! I also enjoyed how people followed current fashion trends while staying true to their African roots.

 

“Africans are bold and fearless when it comes to print. This inspired me to create a strong print story with a slightly progressive feel. I love how the prints in this collection clash against each other to create pieces that are interesting and special. I’ve also incorporated geometric shapes, which are a favourite design element of mine. My hope is that a variety of women, slim or full-figured will enjoy wearing this collection as much as I enjoyed designing it. I played with proportions that flatter most figures and considered what a woman would like to show off from the length of her dress to the position of her sleeves. And while the collection is figure-conscious, it’s also playful and relaxed.”

 

Not only does MRP welcome Anisa into their stores, they are also proud to welcome her as an official ambassador for the MRP Foundation. The newly-launched Ambassador & Mentorship programme provides significant individuals at the top of their field within the fashion and design world with the opportunity to represent the organisation while allowing them the chance to mentor previously unemployed young South Africans who are enrolled in the MRP Foundation’s JumpStart Programme.

 

The JumpStart Manufacturing Programme directly addresses South Africa’s youth unemployment challenge by developing manufacturing skills for the youth and facilitating an associated trainee placement programme within MRP’s local supply chain. As an ambassador for the MRP Foundation, Anisa will facilitate the teaching of specific learning modules, which form part of the JumpStart Manufacturing Programme, while raising awareness for the MRP Foundation and its programmes.

 

Anisa’s range will be available in select MRP stores and online at mrp.com from 27 October.

#NowPlaying - Noonday Tune

 

It’s hard not to love the internet when things like Noonday Tune exist. The site, which started in August 2011, encourages music discovery by way of kicking off the afternoon with a new tune daily. Thanks to a rather diverse (and relatively permanent) group of South African conrtibutors, Noonday Tune caters for a wide range of musical tastes and inclinations. At the end of each month they compile a playlist with 8 tracks from the past 30 or so days of sharings.

Broederbond by Pierre le Riche (6)

 

In 2009 Pierre le Riche made the transition from the interior design industry to the art world. Now, he works as an independent artist from his studio in Woodstock, Cape Town. He graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the University of South Africa in 2013, with plans to pursue his Master’s at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2015.

 

Earlier this year, Pierre took part in an artist-in-residence program at the Arteles Creative Centre in Haukijarvi, Finland. A series of works created individually and in collaboration with fellow Capetonian artist Paul Senyol (who attended the same residency as Pierre, a month later) is currently being exhibited at Salon 91 in a duo show titled Odd Traditions.

 

Pierre’s previous works include Broederbond, an installation created for his graduate exhibition; Op Hierdie Rots, which investigates the ways history has shaped post-apartheid Afrikaner masculinity; and Nwtwn, a personal response to the experience of stepping into Newtown for the first time.

 

Here, we find out more from the artist himself:

 

Growing up, was there ever any indication that you’d be doing what you are now?

 

I had many dream careers as a boy and all of them were quite unconventional for a young Afrikaans male: dancing, cooking, design, music…anything creative really. I was mostly set on interior design though, but after working as a student interior architect in London in 2007 I realised that the design industry did not bring out the best in me. I found myself becoming more and more fascinated with the arts and in 2009 I registered for a bachelor of visual arts at the University of South Africa and never looked back.

 

Tell us about your journey so far, and how you’ve come to be where you are today…

 

It was most definitely a mixture of hard work, taking risks and perhaps a bit of sheer luck. I was retrenched from my day job two years ago and rather than looking for a new job I decided to become a full-time artist. I found that since my art making went from being a hobby (or just part-time studies) to a profession the quality of my work has raised substantially, and so has the reception thereof.

 

How has your background in interior design continued to influence your approach as an artist?

 

The one thing I really enjoyed about being an interior designer was the space-planning element thereof. Whenever I get the opportunity to exhibit somewhere, whether it will be a range of sculptures or a large-scale installation, I will always ask for a floor plan and elevations to really try and see how I can maximize the effect of the art in the space.

 

Broederbond

How would you describe your style or aesthetic, and how has this developed since you first started out?

 

I wouldn’t say that I have a particular style or aesthetic to my work since each body of work is so visually different. One approach that I always maintain is minimalism and I think I have really refined this technique the last couple of years.

 

What are you influenced and inspired by?

 

Picasso once said that inspiration does exist, but it must find you working. I am most inspired when I am at work in my studio or just doodling in a coffee shop. I’m not too fond of turning to other artists’ work for inspiration as I feel it hinders my creative process, but on the other hand it is also hard not to be mesmerized by Do Ho Suh’s installations.

 

How important to you is the physical space you create in?

 

For me it is important to have a dedicated space to work in that is separate from where I live.

 

When did you first begin working with acrylic thread, and what draws you to this medium?

 

When I was designing my Rainbow Room back in 2012 I happened to come across acrylic thread by chance one day. It worked really well to create the optical illusion of transparent yet solid walls I wanted to create. It has been a favourite ever since.

 

Broederbond

The Rainbow Room is an installation created for your graduate exhibition, Broederbond, which juxtaposes the concept of homosexuality and masculinity. Could you tell us more about this?

 

Broederbond is a body of work that takes a look at Afrikaner masculine hegemony and how homosexuality is dealt with within this culture. When I think of Afrikaner masculinity I think rugby, and can’t help but think back to my childhood when simply playing or not playing rugby identified whether you were a ‘proper’ boy or not. The Rainbow Room is a large-scale installation based on a sitting room or voorkamer where the family would normally come together to watch rugby together. My version of this room is different. The sound of the rugby game (the 1995 Rugby World Cup final match) on the television is muted, the walls are transparent and the entire room, complete with 150 rugby balls and heritage furniture, is covered with colourful yarn-bombs in the colours of the gay pride flag. This colourful interference in this seemingly masculine environment creates juxtaposition of Afrikaner masculinity and homosexuality and questions the acceptance thereof in this conservative culture.

 

A collection titled Op hierdie Rots has its roots in Broederbond but this time, looks at the ways in which history has shaped post-apartheid Afrikaner masculinity as a whole. How did you approach the art-making process here?

 

I have to admit that Op hierdie Rots was the most challenging body of work that I have created to date. The concept in itself is extremely layered as it deals with political and social South African history, but also tries to pinpoint the status/identity of the Afrikaner male in post-apartheid South Africa. The challenge was to simplify all of this. During the experimentation phase I created concrete casts of rugby balls. They were incredibly beautifully detailed and fragile, but didn’t feel suitable to the concept so I smashed them up and cast them in layers of concrete and re-excavated them by chiselling and carving back into the concrete layers. The process was almost archaeological and creates a constant reference between the past and the future.

You recently exhibited a thread installation at the Turbine Art Fair called Nwtwn. What does this work explore?

 

Nwtwn was created for Assemblage’s Fresh Produce emerging artists group show and this show specifically called on artist to address the history of the Newtown and Brickfields area of Johannesburg. I visited Johannesburg for the first time in my life earlier this year and Nwtwn tells the story of how overwhelmed I was when I first set foot in this area. The work physically represents a slice of the façade of an Edwardian building found in Bree Street, Newtown that is distorted and wrapped around a cube. Once you step into the work you are flooded with vibrant colour, optical illusion and a distortion of space: almost as if you are stepping into Newtown for the first time.

Odd Traditions, your duo show with Paul Senyol, opened at Salon91 on 15 October. What are you exhibiting? How do you view the relationship between Paul’s paintings, and your installations?

 

Up until July Paul and I had never met, but earlier this year we took part in the same artist residency in Finland and the curator at Salon91 thought it would be a good idea for us to draw on this experience to create new works. I think the strongest relationship between our works is definitely found visually through the use of repetition and colour. Expect a colourful range of works including installation, sculpture, paintings, etchings and a few very interesting collaborative works.

Lavender Hill Better Bodies is a short documentary about Rui Solomons, a young bodybuilder from Lavender Hill who found a way to turn his life around and is intent on helping others in his community do the same. Known as the most dangerous area within the Cape Peninsula, innocent citizens and children regularly lose their lives in the crossfire of violent gang wars. Growing up in such a poverty stricken environment drives a large portion of the youth to turn to either drug-related business or gangsterism.

 

Gabriella Achadinha (who produced the documentary, and co-directed it alongside Michelle Madden) first met Rui through his brother Bevan Solomons, on the set of a music video shooting in Lavendar Hill. “The particular scene involved weights and after some fun snap-taking, Bevan began talking about his brothers’ success as a starting bodybuilder and he asked whether we would be interested in photographing him sometime,” she says. Upon meeting Rui, Gabriella was taken by his infectious, positive, go-getting yet calm energy. “His ambition and dreams for the community that he loves and grew up in is manifested in his business idea, Better Bodies, in which he envisions a gym for all community members with free training and counselling.”

 

In Lavender Hill Better Bodies, Rui discusses his life in Lavender Hill and what bodybuilding means to him as a tool to further himself but over and above that, to inspire other children growing up in the same dire circumstances. Constable Adams who is in charge of the Lavender Hill area identified bodybuilding, specifically focusing on the competitive sport entry, as a means to divert young men from crime to something more constructive.

 

“A dynamic space of conflict and innocence, walking through the flats one is met with a multitude of young children playing games of skip rope and doing group homework together,” Gabriella recounts. On the other end of this spectrum, the secondary school Rui attended recently installed a 1.2 million rand bullet-deflecting fence in order to prevent their students from getting killed in stray bullets from local gang warfare. “This puts into perspective the measures that the local community has to take to project their children, as well as the tumultuous space these youth grow up in.” Contrasted with hope and violence, this is the environment that Rui navigates daily and is determined to have an effect on.

This heart-breaking short film by Jolynn Minnaar, made script-to-screen in just 72 hours, was recently named the winner of the 2014 shnit Real Time Competition. In it, the charismatic Mr Basil Twine talks tenderly about his beloved wife Valma and their daily life together. The film skips between Basil reminiscing about the past and speaking about the present but as the story unfolds the sad truth is gradually revealed, that Valma passed away a few years ago and Basil is a stage 2 Alzheimer’s sufferer.

 

Jolynn is an award-winning director, cinematographer, photographer and communications strategist committed to telling stories that matter. She is most well-known for her acclaimed debut feature, Unearthed, a thoroughly researched documentary that uncovers the shale gas industry from an international perspective in light of the fracking debate in South Africa.

 

Now in its fourth year, the shnit Real Time Competition annually invites three home grown filmmakers drawn from Cape Town’s most exciting young talent to compete against each other to produce a 5 minute film over the course of the festival week. This year’s theme was ‘Home’. Jolynn was up against Kyle Lewis and Kofi Zwana and was chosen the winner by judges Jenna Bass, Jahmil XT Qubeka and Terence Neale, headed by Gavin Hood.
