Bert Pauw, an interdisciplinary artists that resides in Cape Town, works within the realms of sculpture, photography and installation.
Pauw’s work has formed part of several group exhibitions since 2014, with his latest work being showcased at SMITH as part of the Rendezvous exhibit. We look at five of Bert’s top art installations.
“Traversing between the social, political and personal, Pauw subtly interferes with, and sometimes combines, found objects in an attempt to transform or enhance their personal and/or collective associations. For Pauw, found objects include “things you can buy at the mall”, and “the last thing left in the cupboard”. Besides his interest in the symbolism of these ‘ordinary’ objects, the simple processes and minimal material used to make the works motivates him in a world of monumental sculptures, spiral jetties and million dollar skulls.”
