Imago Mundi, a group exhibition




Imago Mundi is a group exhibition showcasing the work of Dirk Bahmann, Fred Clarke and Carly Whitaker. This exhibition of lightboxes engages with individual and universal concepts of dwelling, natural cycles and the unseen. Imago Mundi refers to an idealised image or representation of the world. It traditionally implies a representation of the cosmos on the ground. The exhibition exists in a darkened space, responding to the idea of a dark cosmos holding light and life, expressed on the ground. Imago Mundi is an existential enquiry that explores and questions place in this city and world; a search for the essence of life in Johannesburg and natural flux.

much concerned with the happenings of animals and what they reveal about our own

Invisible Cities 7




For years we’ve wondered what was inside that building on the corner of Commissioner and Albreicht; that beautiful building, The Cosmopolitan Hotel. We’re going in people. This is a truly transitional space, it’s been so many things and the evidence hangs in the corners, on the walls… The walls that we wish could speak.
