We create meaning through storytelling and mythmaking. Through sharing our experiences with each other, we are able to find common connections.
The act of imagining and dreaming is our most powerful tool to shift our lived reality. Reflect. Reimagine. Reset. is a group exhibition that looks towards the boundless creativity of Artists and their power to imagine new far-reaching futures.
While it is true that art imitates life and is a reflection of the human condition, the true power of artmaking lies in it ability to create a space for imagining new ways of sharing space.
Reflect. Reimagine. Reset. looks towards the collective strength of artists to help us envision life anew. The exhibition features the works of 8 artists, who in unique ways, chronicle the reality of our times, and look towards the future in unimaginable ways.
Featured artists include: Nonzuzo Gxekwa, Pierre le Riche, Pardon Mapondera, Johno Mellish, Lulama Wolf, Manyatsa Monyamane, Lerato Motaung and Jake Michael Singer. It is curated by Jana Terblanche and runs until 31 January 2021.
Art is where reality and dreams collide. Through it, we can begin to consider the world differently and discover alternative ways for us to live better.
Reflect. Reimagine. Reset. traces the self-fulfilling sequence art creation proposes and postulates a moment to take stock of the present while move forward with renewed intentionality.
Reflect. Reimagine. Reset. does not attempt to summarise the current moment, but rather celebrates the unique ways different artist offer alternative realities as solutions.
In this particular moment the role of the artist has become increasingly important as artists are able to imagine solutions to govern society that are not bound by the constraints of reality, practicality, physics or the desire for order.
Abstract solutions offer a gateway into new ways of thinking. In this way, art has more in common with metaphysics that studies the realities beyond the physical world.
The human imagination is a boundless space for ingenuity, and Artists enact their imaginations to offer us unlimited ways of approaching physical realities.
By tapping into the limitless capability for creative thought, Artists create worlds that are more just and equitable for its inhabitants.
