The Void: positive and negative spaces’ is the second solo exhibition of Cape Town based artist Christopher Swift, which opened at Commune.1 on the 24th August.

 

The work documents the various material possibilities of a star tetrahedron and includes a collection of drawings, large-scale installations and sculptures created from original Robben Island prison fencing. The resulting exhibition highlights South Africa’s liberation from apartheid rule, and reflects on almost two decades of democracy by considering the successes and failures of our democratic system.

 

Fortunately for those of us who aren’t able to view the works in person, photographer Michelle Oberholzer of Cinder & Skylark has taken some great photographs of the exhibition which you can find below.

 

For those who can attend, the exhibition will run until 20 September 2013 at the Commune.1 gallery, 64 Wale Street. See our previous post on the exhibition for more information.
