04 Jun Pattern Language | Rodan Kane Hart
Pattern Language is a solo exhibition of new sculpture, sculptural inlays, and installation by Rodan Kane Hart. The show opens tomorrow evening at Whatiftheworld in Woodstock, Cape Town and runs until 6 July.
In this exhibition Hart continues to explore experiential structures and sculptures. Inspired by architectural forms found in the urban environments of his native Johannesburg and Cape Town, his recent series of steel sculptures explore the notion of generative shape, pattern and form in relation to the viewer’s experience. These works attempt to stimulate a heightened emotional response through their illusionistic and fragmented forms.
Referencing Christopher Alexander’s architectural, urban design and community livability book titled A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction, published in 1977, Pattern Language attempts to identify, expose and ‘unpack’ the ideological constructs that underpin numerous urban forms found within these contemporary South African cities.
Date: 5 June 2013 (runs till 6 July 2013)
