This exhibition will be featuring ten well established and emerging contemporary South African artists.

Exhibition title: ‘(f)ases’

The word Fases – Comes from the Ancient Greek word phásis – which means appearance

The word Phases – a distinct period or stage in a series of events or a process of change or development

In this modern digital age, social media platforms allow us to take a peek into countless people’s lives and the different phases or stages of their lives (No matter how real/fake they may appear) we too as individuals capture and portray different phases of our lives, this month you click ‘Like’ next month you delete a friend or reject a request, dislike that page and loving that one’s post, we are constantly changing and evolving our ‘image’.

Through their own unique interpretation the artists created portraits/figures exploring the outward image of the individual and the phases said individual goes through whether physical or otherwise, within the digital age we live in.
