January 21 - March 9, 2013
In South Africa, two events in the year of 2012 situate the question of information and its transfer: the Protection of State Information Bill and the Marikana Massacre. This project responds to the power of ‘information’ to project an image of a place or an event, but will also reflect on what it is that does not translate. What exactly does it mean to make work as a South African based artist for a European audience? What are the complexities of that audience’s national identity? Where is the potential for mistranslation and misunderstanding.
