Empty now, but just you wait...
Announcing a three month art residency in this public facing street front shop window where the main thematics of an investigation into the visual constructs of pictorial whiteness will jostle for space and attention, by experimenting visually in assemblage form, with the concepts of Contempt and Disgust in the space between the public and the private, towards the practice component of the fulfilment of a PhD in History of Art. Each new arrangement will be well documented and published right here but, if you are in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, come pop an eyeful. Located  next to the entrance of the Wits Art Museum (WAM) in Jorrissen street, and then comment right here if you have strong feelings,  opinions or just want to connect. Dialogue very welcome and necessary.
