All that it is...all that is was.


This is an exhibition that examines the urban identity of contemporary Cape Town. It is a work that observes the inherent paradoxes found within the collisions, transactions and dislocations of the common place and the everyday that seeks to focus on the silences and cracks of a city caught between the legacy of its past and the anxiety of an unknown future.

Whilst Andrew Jackson first visited Cape Town in 2005, the images in this exhibition were produced during an extended stay in the city between 2006 and the start of 2007. They are his attempts to examine the ways in which people are marked by the fragmented and transitory spaces of Cape Town and his attempt to make conscious and visible the traces of a city's irreconcilable realities
