Goodman Gallery presents Safety Pin, an exhibition of new paintings and a sculptural installation by Misheck Masamvu.
Siphokazi Jonas will do a performance of Misheck Masamvu poem “Safety Pin” on Friday 17th Feb at 19h15 and 20h00
The artist combines striking colour with a distinct expressionist style to create tumultuous landscapes, representing the confessional vulnerability that lies at the heart of his practice.
Safety Pin uses intergenerational relationships as the primary source with an emphasis on maternal links. Oscillating between abstraction and figuration, the exhibition also addresses the past while searching for a way of being present – with dignity – in this world.
