Editorial SOUTH AFRICA’S LEADING VISUAL ARTS PUBLICATION

T

his month brings the even more colourful and diverse Turbine Art Fair to kick start a welcome opportunity to view and buy quality art work from emerging and established talent. One of my favourite art happenings in July is Solo Studios held in Riebeek Kasteel. Artists and galleries have created an authentic and personally enriching event by combining art, food, wine and accommodation in the town’s fantastic setting. Everything is set to human time and space - One can wonder off from time to time between visiting the galleries, with a glass of locally grown wine and watch the sheep in the fields timelessly grazing. Lastly, this July’s edition includes the introduction of the New Blood Schools project. This initiative is open to learners from Grades 10-12 from over 180 SA school art departments. All the daily action is on our website and Facebook profile. New Blood is, I believe an indication of the immense raw talent that young South African artists have, that in some cases could be comparable to some works in our best galleries. New Blood reflects what issues young people are dealing with right now, and what incoming thought and mediums are coming into the market. Thinking back to when I was in fourth year art school, a lecturer said to me, “Watch the first years, they are the ones who have the incredible ideas”. Now many years later, I do believe that we should give encouragement and tribute to these young artists who are seeking to make sense of the world and finding their own creative language. I hope that you will support us with the New Blood project by logging onto www.arttimes.co.za/newblood I would like to thank all our readers for their encouragement and support of our media platform. We continue to be inspired by your response, suggestions and advice. I look forward to seeing you at The Turbine Art Fair, or bumping into you in a green field far away somewhere close to Riebeek Kasteel; all under God’s beautiful skies and living in  our beloved colourful country.

T

he RMB Turbine Art Fair has firmly established itself as a must-attend event on the annual South African art calendar, taking place from 12 – 15 July 2018. The Fair offers visitors an opportunity to view and buy quality artwork from emerging and established talent in a fun and accessible way, with all pieces for sale priced below R50 000.00.

T

he RMB Turbine Art Fair will present a series of special projects for visitors to view during this 2018 Fair. These projects include ‘The RMB Private Bank Talks Programme’. Throughout the weekend of the Fair, this daily programme includes walkabouts with celebrities, art professionals and well-known artists and is partnered by RMB Private Bank. These free walkabouts also include age appropriate options aimed at helping children understand art and sharing a vocabulary that equips them to appreciate and describe it. “Our investment in the ‘RMB Private Bank Talks Programme’ helps to bring art to life and offers both our clients and all Fair attendees the chance to mindfully explore the way in which art molds, builds, and contributes towards our creative economy. Investing in art starts with the investment in the youthful talent that creates the art. Artists as a collective, are some of our greatest assets in building our future design thinkers.”

The talks and walkabout progamme is titled ‘THINK’ and offers a perspective on various artists’ processes, following through to their end result – often contributing positively towards solutions to worldly problems, that may transform our homes, be viewed in galleries or become proud and public South African landmarks,” says Eric Enslin, CEO RMB Private Bank. A Fair highlight of 2018 is an exhibition featuring a selection of Irma Stern still lifes from private collections titled “Life Force: The Still Lifes of Irma Stern”, proudly presented by Strauss & Co. Not only is Irma Stern the bestselling artist on the secondary market, and specifically at Strauss & Co, but her still lifes serve as inspiration to young contemporary artists as well. A competition among scholars at tertiary art schools in Gauteng has been created for artists to submit a still life in a medium of their choice and a selection of the best works will be exhibited at RMB Turbine Art Fair alongside the Stern showcase. Turbine Art Fair is proudly sponsoring “This landscape. This landscape! The Quintessential Metaphor For Life” by David Koloane in collaboration with LL Editions and curated by Ruzy Rusik to celebrate 80 years of artist David Koloane. “In all life of South African Left: Paul Senyol.

Art, especially in the Black Community none has ever celebrated our own. Therefore, it is time that we celebrate Ntate Koloane as he was taught how to paint but expressed himself though the medium of printing,” says Joe Legate, LL Editions. Installations have always been an exciting part of the RMB Turbine Art Fair. Curator, Tamzin Lovell-Miller asks the question “Who are we after this “Post-Truth” time has shaped us?” Pulling together artworks that range from the finely crafted to the augmented virtual, and the interactive physical and digital, this year’s installations are experiences set to intrigue and inspire audiences of the Fair, and leave them with some extraordinary new ideas. The Graduate Exhibition returns for a 4th year and is curated especially for the RMB Turbine Art Fair. This exhibition features some of the best post-graduate paintings and in 2018 the inclusion of photography from university arts departments across South Africa. The 2018 exhibition will be curated by Musa N. Nxumalo. RMB Talent Unlocked partnered by Rand Merchant Bank has funded a six-month intensive workshop programme for emerging artists, that integrates practical art-making (focusing on process and conceptual development) and professional practice training in collaboration with Assemblage and VANSA. This exciting exhibition of emerging artists will be curated by Fulufhelo Mobadi. “The RMB Turbine Art Fair has something for everyone: established collectors looking to discover young talent or find a small gem by a well known artist, aspiring and emerging collectors who want to expand their knowledge about collecting in a warm and welcoming environment, as well as finding affordable, good quality contemporary South African art they can trust,” concludes Glynis Hyslop, founder of Turbine Art Fair and MD of The Forum Company.

GALERIE’ NOKO

Breaking Boundaries, RMB Turbine Art Fair 12 – 15 July 2018 www.galerienoko.com

G

alerie NOKO features works by various artists offering diffuse socio-political, cultural or traditional views on contemporary culture. The re-evaluation and presentation of perceptions and conjectures by our modern and contemporary artists is aimed at facilitating and enhancing the discussion of artistic observations and engagements. Galerie NOKO serves as a fulcrum for dialogue through thematically structured group and solo exhibitions and our programmes are purposed to optimise the generation and dissemination of visual narratives. We foresee in our pursuits a parallel attempt in our community to develop diverse and multicultural approaches. It is with an integrated focus of exhibiting both local and international artists at various points of development in their careers that the gallery is well positioned to show new, fresh and established visions. Our core mandate is to operate and maintain an accessible art gallery for the development of better public understanding and appreciation of art. We serve as an art advisory and consultancy sounding board to art collectors and the art community at large. Our partnership with the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University to present projects reinforced our capacity to connect the academic space and art with the community Since Galerie NOKO opened in 2014, it has exhibited more than one hundred and sixty five artists in over thirty nine exhibitions interspaced with community development projects, Panel discussions, Talks and Workshops. Our exhibitions, programs and projects has brought visual metaphors and artists who have never been seen or heard of in Port Elizabeth or the province to audiences. Galerie NOKO has participated in international art fairs including the Cape Town Art Fair and Johannesburg Art Fairs. This year we participate for the first time at the 2018 RMB

AMAQABA VOL. 1

A collaboration at Eclectica Galleries by Xhanti Zwelendaba and Inga Somdyala www.eclecticacontemporary.co.za

X

hanti Zwelendaba and Inga Somdyala work conceptually, in sculpture, print and installation. Both are graduates of the Michaelis School of Fine Art and have each featured in prominent exhibitions and art fairs. Inga Somdayala is currently working towards his MFA at Michaelis, while Xhanti Zwelendaba is a practicing artist, who is currently living between the Eastern Cape, Johannesburg and Cape Town. Together, they have teamed up to present a body of work together at the Eclectica Galleries in Cape Town that explores notions of belonging, identity, religion, land and language drawing on their shared isiXhosa identity. The term ‘i-qaba’ [singular] is commonly understood as an insult or derogatory term for someone seen as ‘uncivilized’ or ‘ignorant’. The title of the project is Amaqaba vol.1, which in their words, “originates from the 18th Century when British missionaries were affecting the way of living for Xhosa people. Specifically, in how there was rebellion from some Xhosa people who decided against this assimilation of westernization and chose to uphold Xhosa traditions. These people were known as ‘ama-qaba’ [plural] because of the red ochre they used to cover their skin; which is applied by rubbing or ‘uku-qaba’ in isiXhosa.” The use of ochre as a material is kneaded through the various aspects of this project, as a lift off point and a tactile exploration of history. The opportunity to present work and collaborate was suggested by the Eclectica Galleries who have been working with both artists for the past two years. The Eclectica Galleries particularly admires their contextual and theoretical handling of art making and wanted to see what might occur when offered a chance to work together. The suggestion of collaboration provided a moment for both Zwlendaba and Somdyala to tackle a topic with the freedom to explore and feel things

out. The aim of the project is to offer a space for interaction, interrogation and learning. Amaqaba vol. 1 is a starting point that reflects on years of thinking and learning undertaken by both artists and a moment to speak back to various understandings of representation and labeling. The exhibition is set up in order to confront these terms and imagine their different possibilities, less bound by the assumption of being lesser than but rather reaching towards an understanding of being multiple and expansive. Entering into the exhibition occurs through a maze, a kraal which is set up to break up the ‘four wall’ cube idea and invite the viewer on a walk through the space. Creating the sense of a blind adventure, the kraal-like maze points to the often dizzying journey of establishing cultural identities. The works each play with objects, imagery and words, turning their preliminary functions upside down while playfully nudging the viewer into deeper thinking and pause to engage and discuss further. “The space becomes a space

of learning and manipulation of knowledge, history, identity and customs”, says Somdyala. “The way we intend to manipulate these themes is to reimagine and re-examine certain knowledge we have and don’t have about ourselves and our culture. It’s a free space where we can be amaqaba without it having any negative connotations associated with it”. While the project space exists within a gallery space, it aims to disrupt and make flexible the constraints and assumed structures of exhibition making. Working with humour and cultural commentary, Amaqaba vol. 1 invites engagement and questioning, it asks for acknowledgment of the need for processing more complex subjectivities and is a space for

40

play and learning. Reflecting on the history of a people and the various lasting consequences of their narratives, the work of Inga Somdyala and Xhanti Zwelendaba situates itself as a mirror that is cracked and altered so as to offer new possibilities of reflection and recognition. “It’s a claiming of the term where it’s okay to move away from fixed conceptions of identity and embrace fluid black identities. It’s a chance for us to mock ourselves in a critical sense, but more importantly, a chance to learn about ourselves.” Xhanti Zwelendaba and Inga Somdyala will be exhibiting Amaqaba Vol. 1 at Eclectica Galleries, 69 Burg Street from 5 July 2018.

ELSA DUAULT Candice Berman Gallery www.candicebermangallery.com By Rosalind Cleaver

There are no lines in nature, only areas of colour, one against another - Edouard Monet

E

lsa Duault’s work is premised on paint and colour and the unchartered passage across stretched canvas surfaces. Duault’s fluid paintings are at once complex and evocative - and sometimes playful. Her works serve to delight and intrigue, intimating the art of marbling and leather onlay work and suggesting extraordinary views of the heavens and earth. Duault’s works vary in size, colour combinations and technique, displaying a proficient mastery of her artistic genre. Instantaneous Music VII (2018) comprises hues of green, yellow, red and ochre that collide and blend with shades of pink and ochre and are interspersed with empty black threads and traces of neutral white. Swathes of colours intermingle, disappear and later re-emerge, almost like satellite images of earth surfaces and coastal areas developed from the Landsat programme. Towards the top of the canvas, exquisite gold and garnet shades move gently towards the curved, canvas edge, driven forward by an avalanche of pale green. Next to this lies a finely pricked surface, drawn through blooms of algaecoloured green and finally merging with a smear of vivid yellow. Near the centre of the canvas, earthy hues of thickened paint bulge gently from a flat space; it is not difficult to imagine this subtle serpentine arrangement as a kind of topographical model of ancient folded mountains.

Instant 120-4, 2018, Acrylic on canvas, 120cm diameter

It is easy to imagine the pale flecks moving over the paint surface as the wakes of small fishing boats viewed from an aircraft window. Since many of the characteristics and features of Duault’s fluid paintings are visually analogous with earthly geological formations and astonishing natural phenomena, it is not surprising to feel a sense of familiarity, of having already having experienced something similar to what we perceive in her work: a clear sense of déjà vu. Levity is certainly evident in Duault’s work. In Instant 120-2 (2018), there is a suggestion of an underwater scene being viewed through a circular porthole. Swirling

shades of warm and cool blues infused with white and traces of black are reminiscent of an oil slick that spreads out and is pushed across the surface of the water by wind and currents. Spots of clear yellow are aligned across the top of the canvas while at the bottom of the canvas the yellow presents as a broad splash. Emerging from the edge of the canvas are what appears to be eight, bright orange, sickle-shaped protrusions, perhaps tentacles that interrupt the sight of the oiled, liquid surface. Patches of earthy red and brown are fused with the orange of the bent appendages, serving to visually ground the invader. Is this an octopus?

Instant 120-3, 2018, Acrylic on canvas, 120cm, diameter

“Duault’s work centres on her adept colour appreciation and application and competent technical skill. The abstract nature of the work allows for a broad reading.” In the artwork entitled Instant 120-4 (2018), sinuous layers of simmering, shimmering reds, browns and streaks of warm blue cover most of the top half of the canvas. The bottom half is covered with complex, interfused red, pink and mauve shapes that have a more vertical, structured appearance that can easily be reified as a bed of dense, healthy long-stemmed flowers. A thick wave of cadmium red flows between the two hemispheres. Close to the top edge of the canvas lies a pond of muddied blue. From its combed bottom edge, ‘droplets’ fall towards the floral arrangement below. Set against the fiery earthy colours, the cool blue drops provide the viewer with an expression

46

and prospect of cool, comforting relief from incessant, searing heat. Living in a drought stricken country, this work can be considered a painterly reminder of the material and psychological value of water. The success of Duault’s work centres on her adept colour appreciation and application and competent technical skill. The abstract nature of the work allows for a broad reading. Audiences should take time to view the works up close and from a distance, and allow time for the magical intricacies and the bigger picture to perform it’s colourful magic.

PITIKA NTULI’S ‘MANDELA SCULPTURE’ One of the highlights of the exhibition and month long programme will be the unveiling of an 18 ton granite sculpture created by Professor Pitika Ntuli titled ‘A Provocation to Reconciliation’ in the main square of the Melrose Arch precinct. Artist’s Motivation This Monument has been carved to honour the true spirit of South Africa’s first President Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela, or Madiba as he is affectionately known, was a man and leader whose love for people and zest for life shone through everything he did. This love was demonstrated most powerfully by two character traits - his commitment to the reconciliation of a people divided by race and years of unequal rights, and his delight in children. Throughout his term as President, health and social care for children were clearly evident among Madiba’s priorities. Madiba’s tangible and intangible legacy is gargantuan. His humanity, leadership and accomplishments are admired and feted around the world. Many celebrations in numerous countries are planned for July 2018, which will be the centenary of Madiba’s birth. For 27 years Madiba laboured on Robben Island breaking stone, and yet he is almost always depicted in bronze. This Monument is carved from Belfast Black Granite (also linking Madiba to the land). Weighing around 18 tons and standing approximately 4.3 metres high, it is a well-researched and executed sculpture redolent with symbolism.

ew Dispensation is an introspective and reflexive project that focuses on the social and political conditions that many South Africans are finding themselves in. It is mostly inspired by societal changes, memories and the lived experiences that various South Africans and South African communities have and use to construct and understand their daily reality.

As an emotionally charged exhibition, New Dispensation draws on sadness, pain and joy that individuals experience in their daily lives and how these emotions motivate them to continue to strive for a better life and a better tomorrow. Drawing further on Sithole’s social surroundings, personal life and experience of the transition from one political dispensation to another, this exhibition questions the notions of human endurance, emotion and position.

STRAUSS & CO

Radiant Irma Stern still life leads Strauss & Co’s offerings for second half of 2018 www.straussart.co.za

S

trauss & Co, South Africa’s leading auction house, has experienced brisk trade in the period January to June, generating combined sales of R120 million (R120 588 713). The company’s three live sales, which this year included a new specialist auction exclusively focusing on contemporary art, generated the lion’s share of the turnover, netting R111 million (R111 053 588). Four online sales brought in R9.5 million (R9 530 200).

The half-year sales are tremendously encouraging, particularly as South Africa’s general economy languishes following poor first-quarter GDP results and tremors in the corporate sector. “After a very exciting start to the year with South Africa’s first standalone contemporary art auction, we achieved solid results in our subsequent sales notwithstanding the challenging economic conditions,” said Frank Kilbourn, Strauss & Co’s chairperson. He expressed his satisfaction with the company’s overall performance, adding: “We are delighted to have consolidated our position as market leader for modern and contemporary South African art.” Especially heartening is the performance of the contemporary art segment, which saw William Kentridge and Robert Hodgins place second and third respectively after Alexis Preller as the most valuable artists sold at auction in 2018. Kentridge generated R7 938 138 from 25 lots sold while Hodgins achieved R6 029 252 from 28 lots sold. A museum-quality drawing by William Kentridge, Deep Pool (1996), from his series Colonial Landscapes, sold for R3 414 00 in June.

Alexis Preller, Head (Adapting Itself to the Unendurable), Sold R 7 055 600

But it is Preller who has emerged as the outstanding performer at Strauss & Co’s auctions so far in 2018. A fine selection of Prellers offered at the company’s June sale pushed his half-year sales total to R18 209 029 from just 13 lots sold. Preller’s Head (Adapting Itself to the Unendurable), an enigmatic portrait from 1949, was the highest individual lot fetching R7 055 600. JH Pierneef came in fourth, with sales totalling R5 266 907 from 24 lots sold, followed by another landscape painter, Erik Laubscher, who netted R4 480 312 from just seven lots sold. Peter Clarke (R3 647 634), Walter Battiss (R3 244 168), Vladimir Tretchikoff (R3 057 451), Gregoire Boonzaier (R2 317 628) and Adriaan Boshoff

R2 163 468) rounded off the table of most valuable artists. The half-year results require a measure of interpretation. Auction bellwethers like Maggie Laubser, Irma Stern and Gerard Sekoto are notably absent from the half-year table. This is singularly a reflection on the slim trade in topquality works by these artists. A fine social-realist work from Sekoto’s formative Sophiatown period, The Donkey Water Carrier (c.1939), fetched R1 079 960 in March. Stern will also doubtlessly shake up the all-male table when her floral still life, Dahlias (estimate R8 – R12 million), goes on sale in October.

Measuring nearly a metre wide and high, Stern’s radiant study of the showiest of cut flowers claims an impeccable provenance that, along with its fine quality, will no doubt prompt vigorous bidding. Formerly owned by Cecilia and Ben Jaffe the painting was acquired in 1994 at a Cape Town sale led by the late Stephan Welz, Strauss & Co’s founding director. The Stern lot forms part of an exciting trove of works consigned to Strauss & Co by the Labia Family Trust. Alongside works by British, French, Hungarian and Italian painters, the Labia Family Trust consignment includes striking canvases by Gwelo Goodman, Terrence McCaw and Frans Oerder. Pieter Wenning’s bucolic 1918 study of Bishopscourt, The Yellow House (estimate

R500 000 – R700 000), ranks alongside Stern’s still life as a highlight. Johannesburg audiences will be able to view Stern’s expressionist masterpiece before it goes under the hammer at a special showing of this pioneering expressionist painter’s work at the Turbine Art Fair, Johannesburg (12 – 15 July 2018). Following on the success of his exhibition devoted to J.H. Pierneef at last year’s fair, Strauss & Co senior art specialist Wilhelm van Rensburg is curating the exhibition Life Force: The Still Lifes of Irma Stern. Strauss & Co’s participation in the Turbine Art Fair art fair dovetails with a broader aim

to nurture new audiences and collectors, notably for contemporary art. The strategy is yielding dividends. The company’s inaugural contemporary art sale in February affirmed the reputations of senior artists like Hodgins, Kentridge, Karel Nel and Penny Siopis at auction, and established new world records for Jake Aikman and Lisa Brice. Aikman’s brilliant form at auction continued in June when his enigmatic seascape in shades of grey and green, Beneath, sold for R341 400, in the process resetting his world record price. “I am delighted that Jake’s wonderful early paintings have gained a new audience among our collectors,” said Bina Genovese, Strauss & Co’s joint managing director. “It is heartening to see hard-working young painters like Jake, Zander Blom, Georgina Gratrix, Mongezi Ncaphayi and Blessing Ngobeni consistently draw enthusiastic bids at our live sales. It validates the role of the secondary market in affirming young talent.” Strauss & Co’s specialists are currently consigning work for the company’s much-anticipated October sale in Cape Town, which will include the blockbuster Stern from the prestigious Labia Family Trust consignment. Consignments are also invited for the company’s November sale in Johannesburg, which will include a themed section titled An Unsung History that focuses on overlooked and neglected artists from the twentieth century. The Johannesburg sale coincides with the thirtieth anniversary of curator Steven Sack’s landmark exhibition, The Neglected Tradition: Towards a New History of South African Art (1930-1988), which opened at the Johannesburg Art Gallery in November 1988. Strauss & Co’s sale will both honour Sack’s important exhibition and expand on its defining metaphor by focussing on unsung artists of all races.

ASPIRE Aspire Art Auctions Shrugs Off Sluggish Market In Latest Sale www.aspireart.net

A

spire Art Auctions achieves sparkling results despite tight economic conditions, selling rare works by Irma Stern, and setting a new world mark for Peter Clarke. World records are also set for Zander Blom, Paul Stopforth and Andrezj Urbanski in a major coup in the contemporary segment. Aspire Art Auctions’ latest Johannesburg sale was held on 17 June 2018. In a slow and unresponsive market, amid tight economic conditions generally in South Africa, the dynamic and innovative auction house made impressive statements, and set several world records. Led by two rare and important Irma Stern still lifes, both of which were fresh to the market, the sale once again took place in the august and elegant surrounds of the Illovo campus of the Gordon Institute of Business Science, and featured a world-class selection of contemporary, modern and historical fine art. The fine art was joined by a small, intimate private collection of antique furniture, an area into which Aspire has recently branched out. The top lot by value on the sale was the superb Irma Stern: Still life with magnolias, apples and bowl (1949), which fetched R6 828 000. While not a South African record by the artist, it is the highest price achieved for a work by Stern for over a year. The painting has an impeccable provenance, having been in the same family since 1950, when it was first purchased in Johannesburg, and has never been exhibited.

Irma Stern: Still life with magnolias, apples and bow, Oil on canvas, (1949)

Another significant Stern still life, one which also has never before been at auction, was sold. Still life with chrysanthemums in the artist’s handmade ceramic jug, from 1950, sold for R3 414 000. Says Aspire director and senior art specialist Emma Bedford, “The sales of these two Stern paintings prove that Aspire has already gained enough gravitas and traction to compete in the established end of the market with work by canonical South African artists. Collectors are clearly feeling that the auction house can achieve the results they’re looking for, despite a lean market.” Among other mid-twentieth century fine art to attract substantial bids and sale results were two works by Alexis Preller, The Wounded Soldier (1944) and Celestial twins (1955). Preller’s work has been solidifying its reputation in the auction market in recent times, and these two fine examples proved no exception, fetching R796 600 and R1 046 960 respectively, both in line with estimates. Aspire has led the auction market recently with sales of work by Cape Town artist Peter Clarke, achieving a world record for one of his gouaches in 2017. The company has now proved itself to be the premier purveyor of Clarke’s work in the country, achieving a substantial world record - and beating their own previous best - for his seductive acrylic and gouache on paper from 1975, Lazy Day, which sold for R1 479 400, a mark which also obliterates his overall auction record achieved in 2016 for one of his oil paintings. The success Aspire has cemented with the market for Clarke was extended with a price of R432 440 achieved for his gouache Sunset at Windemere (1957), more than double its high estimate. The sale of both works ensures that Clarke’s reputation in the auction market as a subtly ironic commentator on apartheid life is maintained. Taken as a group, work by the 1960s Amadlozi Group based around collector Egon Guenther and the Polly Street Art Centre under Cecil Skotnes is becoming more and more significant among collectors.

“It’s clear that our brand values and business approach are finding deep resonance in the market. As our reach expands and our market grows, we remain committed to business ethics and integrity, museum quality presentation, and innovation in the fine art auction industry in the country.” Several works by Skotnes himself appeared on the auction, and the top lot among them, The Legend of the Judean War, (1984) sold for R819 360, just below its high estimate and a resounding price for a work from this period. A sculpture by perhaps the best known Amadlozi alumnus, Edoardo Villa, fetched a world record with Aspire in 2017, when his Vertical composition (1958) sold for R1 818 880. Villa’s work is at last being provided with an appropriate retrospective exhibition context, with the newly-opened Norval Foundation staging a major show. On this sale Villa’s successful association with Aspire continued, with his Sculpture VIII fetching R1 138 000. Aspire has since its inception been a leader in the industry for contemporary fine art. The segment is a specific strategic focus for Aspire, and its contemporary benchmark was set in November 2017 when the company achieved a South African record price for a drawing by contemporary doyen William Kentridge. His Drawing from Mine (Soho with coffee plunger and cup) (1991), sold for R5 456 640. On this sale the company set a number of records for contemporary work. World records were achieved for an early abstract by Zander Blom, Untitled 1.5 (2010), which fetched R386 920; and for a new artist at auction, Andrezj Urbanski, whose work A0037 47/47/16 (2016) reached over its high estimate at R125 180. At the other end of the contemporary experience spectrum, the elder statesman of South African fine art photography, David Goldblatt,

achieved the second highest South African price ever of R318 640 for his magisterial photograph from 2003, Johannesburg from the Southwest. Finally, another world record for a contemporary artist was reached when Paul Stopforth’s Steve Biko’s Right Hand (1980) sold for R79 660, an important record to have achieved in the context of postapartheid South Africa. These successes in very different areas of the market segment provide definitve evidence that Aspire is the chosen destination for sellers and buyers of contemporary art at auction in the country Ruarc Peffers, Director, Senior Art Specialist and auctioneer, comments: “We are delighted to be doing so well with this kind of work. Our Artist’s Resale Rights project sees all these living South African artists gain royalty payments from the successful sale of their work on our auctions. The fact that we have also set so many records in the process makes it all the sweeter.” Peffers concludes: “It’s clear that our brand values and business approach are finding deep resonance in the market. As our reach expands and our market grows, we remain committed to business ethics and integrity, museum quality presentation, and innovation in the fine art auction industry in the country.” Upcoming Auction details: Aspire’s next sale is on 28 October 2018, at GIBS in Johannesburg.

SANLAM ART COLLECTION Sanlam celebrates its 100th year with an exhibition covering a century of South African art.

T

here are few places you can get a broad overview of South African art that covers a century in one place. Least of all would you expect to see something like this in Bellville. The Sanlam Art Gallery’s exhibition, Centennial: A Century of South African Art from the Sanlam Art Collection 1918 – 2018 does just that. Compiled by curator Stefan Hundt from the 2000 strong Sanlam Art Collection, this exhibition showcases celebrated historical works by artists such as Maggie Laubser, Irma Stern, Gerard Sekoto, JH Pierneef, Sydney Kumalo, Cecil Skotnes, Gladys Mgudlandlu and Stanley Pinker alongside more contemporary pieces and installations by, Elza Botha, Diane Victor, Ndikumbule Nquinambe, Dumile Feni, Pauline Gutter, Adam Letch, Jan van der Merwe and Gavin Younge to mention a few of the artists represented.

The narrative of political and art historical transformation from colonial hegemony and its aesthetic conservatism, through the years of cultural isolation and state sponsored political repression, to the establishment of a democratic order in South Africa, are represented by key images in this exhibition. Beginning with early Impressionist-styled landscapes by Pieter Wenning and Hugo Naudé around 1918, through to the late 1940s the transformation in art is marked by the expressive works of Maggie Laubser, Irma Stern and Gerard Sekoto and the formalised landscapes of JH Pierneef. Abstraction dominates from the early 1950s to the 1970s represented by Kenneth Bakker, Sydney Kumalo, Ezrom Legae, Christo Coetzee, Walter Battiss and Cecil Skotnes. The 1980s sees artists challenging the politically repressive Apartheid state. Works by Elza Botha, Paul Emsley and William Kentridge at first seem

conventional compositions of landscape, figures and collaged cut-outs on closer inspection reveal to be visual allegories on the state of the nation. From 1991, the unbanning of the ANC and political parties; the establishment of a democratic state in 1994 and following through to the next Millennium, artists engage with broader social dilemmas growing out of a free but economically unjust, violent and patriarchal society. Jan van der Merwe’s Gaste, 2004, with its repeating gunshot served up as dinner, Diane Victor’s Disasters of Peace 2000 (ongoing) and Pauline Gutter’s Their Last Supper 2007 make direct reference to the disintegration of societal norms, corruption and the disintegration of the rule of law. In contrast Ndikhumbule Ngqinambi’s Walk of Numbers 2010, reflects on the resilience of people struggling towards their freedom and salvation while Richard Mudariki’s The Model presents an ironic view on the “Rhodes must fall” Saga some three years ago. This selection from the Sanlam Art Collection provides many opportunities for the viewer to engage with some of the most interesting images produced in South Africa over 100 years. The diversity of the quality artworks on display makes this a landmark exhibition not to be missed. Sanlam commenced building an art collection in 1965 and has continued to acquire significant images in all contemporary media. The collection can be seen at 14 different locations in Sanlam offices in the Western Cape and Gauteng. The Sanlam Art Gallery at the Sanlam’s head office in Bellville is the primary exhibition site for the Sanlam Art Collection and is open to the public on weekdays from 09:00 – 16:30 or by appointment with curator Stefan Hundt.

Riebeek Valley Creative Community Opens Its Doors Again 9th - 12th August 2018 www.solostudios.co.za

olo Studios, an annual event that has fast made a name for itself amongst art lovers, will be taking place in the Riebeek Valley from Thursday the 9th to Sunday the 12th of August. This bespoke art experience has firmly established itself on the events calendar, and promises to again attract hundreds of art aficionados. This will be the third year that Solo Studios will take place, following the resounding success of the inaugural event in 2016, and the proceeding - and even more successful - event in 2017. Hosted in and around the towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West, “Solo Studios – Intimate Art Encounters” provides a rare opportunity for art collectors – from beginners to the very seasoned - to visit artists in their studios to view and purchase their art straight off the easel. The participating artists open their private homes and studios to a limited number of visitors over the weekend. This year’s event features 16 top artists, all of whom call the Riebeek Valley home. These artists are: Tamlin Blake, Claudia Gurwitz, Jenny Parsons, Antoinette von Saurma, Leila Fanner, Ivan Kirstein, Louisa Gerryts, Gordon Williams, Solly Smook, Andre van Vuuren, Tanya Majo, Riaan van Zyl, Raymond Oberholzer, Greta McMahon, Wiehan de Jager and Emma Willemse. Exciting new additions to previous years’ events Building on the unique offerings of previous years, Solo Studios 2018 will include some exciting additions such as an opportunity to meet Jacques Pauw at The Red Tin Roof, the very place where he wrote “The President’s Keepers”, and which made headlines after being raided by The Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (The Hawks) . For wine-lovers “The Art of Wine” - curated by Joseph Tongai Dhafana, one of South Africa’s leading sommeliers and a rising star in the world of wine - sees a unique collaboration between the Solo Studios artists and a boutique wine producer. “Joseph started out as a wine steward in Riebeek Kasteel, and has since developed an illustrious career in the wine industry, representing Team Zimbabwe in the Andre van Vuuren Studio

recent World Wine Tasting Championships in Burgundy, France,” explains Klaus Piprek, organiser and overall driving force behind Solo Studios. “’The Solo Sessions’ will see a select group of musicians coming together to entertain visitors throughout the weekend with ad-hoc performances and “jam-sessions”.” Group Exhibitions Galleries, pop-up group exhibitions and cultural collaborations that are also participating in Solo Studios, and which will be open for the entire weekend, are RK Contemporary, The Gallery, The Royal Gallery, The Collaborate and Pictorex Print Studio. 82

Visitors encouraged to stay and get a taste of village life “Visitors are encouraged to stay in the Valley over the entire weekend of Solo Studios, during which time they can directly engage with the participating artists in their personal workspaces, admire the group exhibitions in the galleries, and experience everything else that the valley has to offer,” Tickets for the event come in a variety of options. The “Premier Weekend Pass” will include the option of a guided walkabout of select studios, access to the official opening cocktail event and access to all participating studios and group exhibitions. A regular “Weekend Pass”,

and “Day Passes” for the Saturday or Sunday respectively, allows access to all participating studios and group exhibitions. An additional cover charge will be applicable at select entertainment venues. “Solo Studios was conceptualised to be an intimate, personal and exclusive art encounter that allows people the rare opportunity to meet these highly talented artists ‘at the coal face’ so to speak,” explains Piprek. “Solo Studios is not another ‘Arts Festival’. You will not find a flea market or beer tents at Solo Studios, for example. We are welcoming visitors to experience our village life as it normally exists,

LONDON ORIGINAL PRINT FAIR 2018 The South African Fine Art Print Fair Visits The London Original Print Fair By Jeremy Sampson

Grayson Perry, Reclining Artist, Woodcut 88

“I really love printmaking. It’s like a mystery and you’re trying to figure out how to rein it in.” - Kiki Smith (contemporary artist).

N

ame a famous painter or sculptor who hasn’t been involved in printmaking? You may be surprised at how difficult that could be. The 2018 London Original Print Fair (LOPF), held annually at The Royal Academy, Burlington House in Piccadilly, was its customary fourday celebration of print: “Visitors can buy and browse original prints from across five centuries: from old and modern master works to the latest prints launched by today’s top artists.” This year LOPF featured almost 50 exhibitors – printmaking studios and galleries that hold print - not only from the UK and Europe, but also from China, Japan, and the USA. Classic prints


It is always enriching to speak with the artists themselves and hear a little of their creative journeys. An English artist, used to printing his northern hemisphere landscapes with black matt ink on white paper, had just returned from a visit to Australia. There he discovered that this practice didn’t do justice to his experience of the harsh light of the outback, and so was forced to experiment technically beyond his comfort zone. Eventually he found that the matt black ink began to reflect the glitter of the Australian bush with a magic ingredient: some metallic silver

were available by artists like Auerbach, Bacon, Freud, Hirst, Hockney, Matisse, Miro, Moore, Picasso and Toulouse-Lautrec. All traditional printmaking techniques were on display, as well as new media digital prints and even 3D prints. From the deceptively simple to the intricately complex, the exhibitors featured many working proof prints, and monotypes hung alongside prints from editions of up to 300. This is the second time Sharon Sampson and I have visited this London-based Fair and it is undoubtedly one of the global print highlights of the year. It was fascinating to talk to the gallerists, hear about the types of work popular today, what collectors are looking for, the various preferences for art in different parts of the world, in which countries print collecting is highly regarded, and of course the issues involved in the pricing of work.

Mandy Conidaris, a curator on the team of the South African Fine Art Print Fair, also had the opportunity to attend LOPF. She was interested in the seemingly widespread resurgence of the traditional Japanese woodcut technique adapted to contemporary imagery, as well as the number of British and European artists who had travelled to Japan to study this artform. Two diverse aspects of the Fair that also drew her in were the extensive evidence of pure patterned work and abstract work, and the way some contemporary artists had replicated the markmaking and tonal ranges of old Masters, such as Rembrandt, to create their own etched selfportraits. We hope that this enthusiasm for prints and printmaking will extend into the awareness of young South African collectors; and that anyone interested in prints and printmaking will visit us at the third South African Fine Art Print Fair (FAP), which will take place for four days from 22 to 25 November 2018 in its now-customary venue: the state-of-the-art Business School at The Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) in Illovo, Johannesburg. Exhibitor applications are open, and the Fair team invites the participation of printmaking studios, galleries that support print, and individual artist/ printmakers from early-career to established. All are welcome – please go to our website for more information: www.safineartprintfair.com

CAN INSTAGRAM REPLACE ART FAIRS? First Published in Artnet Written by Sarah Cascone

D

one With Art Fairs, Team Gallery Is Selling Works Through Instagram Instead of Going to Basel The gallery is advertising a work per day this week on Instagram.

For the first time in years, collectors at Art Basel won’t find a booth from New York’s Team Gallery at the fair—but that doesn’t mean they won’t come across work from the gallery while they’re in Switzerland. As they scroll through Instagram, they might see a sponsored post from Team, which is advertising the sale of an artwork each day for the next week on the social-networking service. The gallery kicked things off yesterday with a Sam McKinniss painting titled Bob and Charlotte, featuring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson’s characters from the 2003 film Lost in Translation, which is for sale for $15,000. The McKinniss post notes that it is the “first of seven works being offered, one-per-day, through Instagram” to the gallery’s 14,000 followers. A $14,000 Ryan McGinley photograph, titled Jade, part of an edition of three, followed early this morning. Galleries often promote their artists’ work on social media, but Team’s inclusion of price tags and use of the platform as a sales interface is unusual. In March, Team Gallery owner José Freire told artnet News that the gallery has found that visual promotion of their work, especially on 92

Instagram, does lead to sales. “But that doesn’t mean that I post a picture on my Instagram account and I sell it—if I post a picture on my Instagram account and someone DMs me to buy it, they get no fucking answer from me. Because I do not sell art that way,” he said. “We’re not an add-to-cart kind of gallery.” Freire did not immediately respond when asked to clarify whether he’s changed his mind with this new approach. That kind of shopping could well become common among art galleries in the near future. In 2017, Instagram introduced a shopping feature, which expanded to Instagram stories this week. Business on Instagram can now tag products, allowing users to click the shopping bag icon and see everything a brand has for sale. A single click on “Shop Now” will transport potential customers to companies’ websites to make purchases. “I think if you look at Instagram you don’t need to go to [Art Basel] Miami, because after scrolling through Instagram you’ll know the same thing,” Freire told artnet News in March, noting that after 78 art fairs in 17 years, including 12 Basel outings, he had stopped meeting new potential clients. Whether a gallery’s reach really is greater on social media remains to be seen, but given the general dissatisfaction around art fairs, it doesn’t seem a stretch to think that more galleries may be testing the waters with unabashed Instagram sales pitches.

THE DEATH OF THE ART GALLERY? Japan’s New Digital Museum May Offer A Glimpse Of The Future Danielle Demetriou, destination expert First Printed in The Telegraph UK, edited.


I

’ve stood beneath waterfalls, scattered trails of petals, followed shoals of fish, wandered through rice fields, bounced on a galaxy of planets, surrounded myself with waves - and now my teacup is exploding with flowers.

Forget staring at a painting in a white-walled gallery. The world of art appreciation will receive a dynamic post-millennial jolt this month, with the launch of a new digital art museum in Tokyo. Mori Building Digital Art Museum: teamLab Borderless, which opens June 21, fortunately has a concept which is a bit catchier than its name: the world’s first digital museum of its scope and scale, it’s a new generation showcase of immersive, interactive digital art created by teamLab, a fast-growing Tokyo collective of socalled “ultra technologists”. As typhoon rains lashed Tokyo on Monday morning, I swapped grey skies and umbrellasnapping winds for a sneak preview of the new museum, housed in a sprawling former games arcade in Odaiba, near Tokyo Bay. Spanning a spacious (and at times, disorientating) 10,000 square metres on two dark-walled levels, its statistics are as impressive as its installations: it’s home to 50 artworks loosely divided into five areas, orchestrated by a complex network of 520 computers and 470 high-tech projectors. Before being let loose to explore, Toshiyuki Inoko, who founded teamLab with a handful of University of Tokyo friends in 2001 (it now has 400-plus staff and countless global exhibitions), offers a clue about its contents. Standing before a distractingly vast waterfall, birds darting above his head and kanji tumbling from the sky, he says: “Time here changes constantly – the seasons and flower forests are always changing. Scenery is linked to realtime. It exists now but you’ll never be able to see it exactly the same way again. It is a completely new world.” He adds: “There’s no direction. Just wander and explore with your own body. Discover your own pathway and find something new.” It’s a refreshing approach, particularly in Japan, where art institutions are normally bound by countless rules enforced by eagle-eyed attendants – and so I wander a little aimlessly into the nearest corridor and follow a flower-strewn

lion on a wall, who lets out a roar as I touch it, before petals flutter to the ground. Spotting an opening, I wander though an unmarked black curtain and find myself in a square room with pounding drumbeats and a dazzlingly agile display of dozens of white spotlights. The best spaces, however, are stumbled across almost accidentally – one is a seemingly endless rice field, in a constant state of flux, reflected infinitely in mirrors, complete with green lotus leaf-like “pods”, floating dandelions and passing fireflies. For children, however, increasing their neurological capacity is likely to be the last thing on their minds as they explore a trampoline-like galaxy where you can create planets with every

bounce; a slide with exploding fruit; flashing poles for boulder climbing; and vast rainbowhued balloon-like structures that change colour on human contact. All in all, I admit I’m impressed. Whether it’s the future of art or not remains to be seen (twodimensional paintings hanging in galleries are unlikely to disappear anytime soon). But the new museum undoubtedly highlights the dizzying scope of possibilities that can be explored – and experienced - through interactive, immersive technology. For all its high-tech whizziness, I love how the artworks remain rooted in Japanese culture and aesthetics (traditional motifs such as cherry blossoms, woodblock-print waves, rice fields and calligraphic strokes are echoed throughout). And amid the technological explorations,

it somehow remains tethered to reality: when you touch a fluttering butterfly, it promptly dies while a small fish drawn by a child before being scanned and dropped into an artwork may well get gobbled up by a bigger creature.I also realise later, while scrolling through my iPhone, that it’s nearly impossible to capture the experience on screen: my videos feels flat and flashy compared to the magic of the realtime moment. And this is perhaps the point. As Inoko says while explaining the “borderless” concept: “This is what the real world is like. We want visitors to get lost rather than follow the order.” Mori Building Digital Art Museum: teamLab Borderless opens June 21. For more info: borderless.teamlab.art

BOOK REVIEWS WITH www.bibliophilia.co.za

Lukas De Beer Field Guide For Creative Professionals

Andrew Tshabangu Footprints

Artist + Entrepreneur = Artrepreneur. Today, more than ever before, creative professionals from all creative domains are beginning to realize that in order to pursue a creative career you need to think like an entrepreneur. Yet as we discover in Artrepreneur - A Field Guide For Creative Professionals (R295), the motivating factors between what drives an entrepreneur and an Artrepreneur differ greatly. For one, Artrepreneurs are not always in it for the money. On the contrary, they are often driven by raw passion and the desire to create. This drive usually creates tension between maintaining authenticity and creativity as an artist, and administrating a business, which is you. In essence, this book is about assisting creative professionals to understand that they are the business and not only the artist. Part self-help, part coaching, part delve-into-your-soul-to-findthe-real-you.

Andrew Tshabangu has been making photographs for over twenty years. He has traversed the city and the countryside—in South Africa and elsewhere—with an ease born of deep familiarity and empathy, and in order to show everyday lives made meaningful by the rhythms of work, faith and leisure. Andrew Tshabangu: Footprints (R660) published by Fourthwall Books and Gallery MOMO is the first major survey book on the work of this acclaimed South African photographer. Each series in this important book suggests a deep contemplation of the places, rituals and material conditions that have structured black life in South Africa. The work suggests an understanding of the ways in which people have made virtues of necessity, transformed the marginal spaces bequeathed to them by apartheid and mobilised the terms of their own political and spiritual freedom.
