Goodman Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition to end the calendar year, review some of the most significant works produced in 2013 and not yet seen in Cape Town, unveil new chapters in some ongoing projects, and to look forward to exhibitions coming up in 2014.
The exhibition features work by some of South Africa's most important artists covering the full spectrum of contemporary artistic practice, and also serves as a chance to introduce a Cape Town audience to some of the exciting young artists the gallery has begun working with over the past year.
In Land of Black Gold IV, recently shown on the exhibition Kaboom! Comics in Art at the Museum fur Moderne Kunst in Bremen, Siemon Allen strategically cuts up, splices and erases original Tintin comic strips by Hergé to create a large single panel that raises questions about language, cultural perspective and the contingent nature of narrative.
