09 Oct Openings This Week: CT
The galleries in Cape Town are a little quiet after the buzzing First Thursdays last week. Here’s a list of some of the gallery openings in and around Cape Town in the upcoming week, so you don’t miss out:
Thursday 10 October 2013:
Body Parts by Jared Ginsburg opens at Blank Projects.
Jared Ginsburg’s latest series of works, Body Parts, is an experiment in figuration and the conversation between pattern, drawing and object. Odd, erotic ink monoprints and carbon copy drawings are developed into outsized sculptures of body parts, manufactured from pieces of canvas that are stitched together and stuffed. These soft body parts trigger more drawing, so that the process is an endless cycle from drawing to object and back again. Offcuts from the sculptures in turn form large-scale abstract compositions on canvas. According to Ginsburg, Body Parts is about “figuring things out through either drawing or making”.This is his second solo exhibition at blank projects.
Blank Projects, 113-115 Sir Lowry Rd Woodstock, Cape Town.
