If you haven’t had the opportunity to see the Cape Town art scene lately, we have something special for you. Today we look at a collaboration of art pieces by Daniel Ting Chong and Jordan Metcalf.
The art pieces on exhibit at the October show are all representative of weapons and items used in South Africa today. Interestingly, they represent weapons used by both the criminal element and the law. The objects on show seek to playfully examine the place of fear and crime in our country, outlining our obsession with violence and the casual paranoia we seem to suffer from.
By scaling the objects to size and turning them into art works, the artists aim to redefine how we feel and view these items in our everyday lives. They want to re-contextualise the place these items hold in our everyday psyche.
The pieces are roughly 300mm to 700 mm wide.
