Save Event: Mathilda Oosthuizen- 1st Thursday

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Bone-like driftwood sculptures not previously exhibited as well as paintings, drawings and ink and water drawings.


Bones and breakable, lines are walkable. To fix a bone takes time but breaking can happen in an instance. There is always the chance that whatever is broken cannot be fixed but we try anyway. Hope allows us to deal with impossible situations. But what happens when it is gone?

The driftwood sculptures in this exhibition contain elements of death as well as hope. They allow room for a naive desire to believe in hope’s possibility no matter what. 

When passing by Line Drawn, the almost negligible tonal disparities are easily dismissed, yet their length ponders the duration that the driftwood has travelled. The tonal markers do not distinguish from one piece to the next but seem to fuse them indiscriminately.

A line can act as a barrier, separating and distinguishing one form from the other. Our skin and bone hold us together securing our insides from the outside world. In this exhibition they are brought out on display through the guise of anatomical illustrations once used to navigate our internal unknown territories.
