‘invasion’ (currently showing)

Acts of invasion stand central to how we define ourselves as human beings – how we look outside of and within our own bodies to comprehend things that exist far away or deep inside.

Comprising of a collection of drawings and a sculptural installation, this exhibition investigates the complex relationship between humans and forms of scientific representation. By taking invasion as the thematic backdrop to this relationship, I explore how the tools used for monitoring forms of invasion are entangled with our perception of self.

The exhibition will be running from 10 October to 16 November 2019 at SMAC Stellenbosch.
