Blank Projects

 

/ // ! ǂ by Bronwyn Katz | exhibition

 

In this, her third exhibition with the gallery, Katz has developed a new system of notation to signify the phonetics of an imagined creole language. Through the creation of new visual forms realised as sculptures and installation made of iron ore, steel, copper and string, and by incorporating aspects of sound and performance, / // ! ǂ explores, through collaboration, the interactions between the visual and the aural, taking cues from Katz’s own personal relationship to language and the voice.

 

The artist wishes to acknowledge and thank sonic artist & performer BŪJIN / Dani Kyengo O'Neill and fashion designer Tsepo Tsotetsi for their contributions to the exhibition.
