Today we’re looking at two utterly adorable elderly women, a fun little animation, colourful screenprints and some photographs that use the traditional still life as a springboard for exploring new territory.
ONE – We know it’s old, but Trudy and Sylvia are so delightful we just had to share this shoot. Pink Ladies photographed by Ashley Marie for Gaschette, with styling by Marieke Merts and hair and make-up by Bianca Comer.
TWO – Making Muti, an animation by MUTI about a witchdoctor’s quest to collect the ingredients needed for traditional medicine.
THREE – Prufrock 6 hit the shelves yesterday, in which Simone Haysom rolls with the police in Khayelitsha, Liam Kruger meditates on running, writing and the open skies of the Highveld and Rosa Lyster brings us her troubling new essay, “The Flowers of the Revolution”.
FOUR – The fifth edition adidas Originals AREA3 Broadsheet was edited by Dario Leite (the co-founder of astore in Cape Town) and features an exclusive shoot by photography duo Kope | Figgins and artwork by Ben Johnson.
SEVEN – Construction is a project by Nico Krijno developed under the auspices of the 133 Arts Residency, which facilitates art-making for emergent artists from the African continent with the city of Johannesburg as a contemporary backdrop.
