Last night we visited Salon91 for the opening of an exhibition of Jordan Metcalf and Daniel Ting Chong‘s new collaboration, Heart of Gold.

 

The works are a playful exploration of the concepts of money, consumerism and greed. The project follows the artists’ previous collaboration Fear.Less which playfully examined the fear of crime in South Africans.

 

Similarly to Fear.Less, Daniel and Jordan once again played with scale and medium to re-contextualise consumer-based iconography and lexicon as art.

 

The pieces are stark, sleek and graphic, using limited colour palettes and diverse mediums such as glass, paper, wood and ceramic. (And glitter!)

 

The exhibition runs until 20 April 2013 at Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection at 91 Kloof Street, Cape Town. Go and see it.
