‘Approaching the Fence’
EXHIBITION

Originally the fence was built between the park and the gallery for security purposes and to avoid littering and loitering. While it is a functional division, it has become an undesirable obstacle. JAG has over the years tried to bridge the gap between the two through projects such as Johannesburg Circa Now and One Square Mile. This project will be an extension of previous ventures and deal directly with the fence. Community groups and schools will be invited to interact with the fence with the aim to invite people into JAG.

09:00 – 17:00
Friday 22nd August open until 18:00

‘re-trace’, 2014 is a year-long research project exploring notions of narration in relation to place and the artist’s body. Initially developed in France during the first half of 2014, the final instalment titled ‘re-trace [part 3]’ will be realised at the GoetheonMain project space. The work proposes a triadic relationship of performance, drawing and the moving image, and suggests the artist’s body as a kind of projection device. The artist, Karimah Ashadu, choreographs a series of movements inspired by the energy and rhythm of the streets of Johannesburg.

In collaboration with Goodman Gallery and Goethe-Institut Johannesburg, Ponte City, the book, will be launched with an installation of some of the works at Ponte City followed by a panel discussion and book signing at The Joburg FNB Art Fair.
