Shifting the Goalposts - a dusty reality in the run up to the World Cup

About

Son Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of new prints by Zimbabwean born artist Dan Halter who lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. ‘Shifting the Goalposts' is a project based around the Beitbridge border between Zimbabwe and South Africa, a location notorious for illegal immigration. Those coming into South Africa are often met with harsh and xenophobic conditions upon arrival. In the dozen images that will be displayed, Halter switched a set of goalposts from a football pitch in the deprived Musina South Africa for a set of goalposts from another pitch in Beitbridge Zimbabwe, subtly politicising both pitches which now each have local and foreign goalposts. The photographic series depicts a dirt football pitch in the Musina township similar to those where the majority of South Africans play the game. In the run up to this years World Cup in particular, this dusty reality sits in stark contrast to the current slick and costly mega-stadiums that have been built by the government in South Africa's major cities in the run up to this major sporting event.
