The Spaces Between by Pam Guhrs

This exhibition concerns itself with the wilderness and human cultures peripheral to it. The artist’s images, whilst most obviously concerned with animal life, reflect on a symbiotic and sometimes predatory relationship that exists between artist and animal.

Johannesburg Sensorium by Dirk Bahmann

Johannesburg Sensorium is an existential enquiry that endeavours to find a sense of place in this city. It is a search for the “Johannesburgness” of Johannesburg. This exhibition attempts to map Jo’burg’s spirit into an image that evokes a fleeting glimpse of the quintessential qualities of this particular place.
