Planning what they could, the rest open to experiment and possible catastrophe, the exhibition documents their process and its eventual result in publication, print, video and food.
Artists include Marcii Goose, Dale Lawrence, Claire Johnson, Franco Fernandes, Ethne Mudge, Bruce Mackay, Christine Joubert, Mareli Esterhuizen, Robert Nicholls, Michael Lumby and Maria Stemmet.


Opening at CLRS&Co. studio 52 Marine Drive Paarden Eiland at 6pm.
