Laura Windvogel (a.k.a. Lady Skollie) in a Johannesburg Arts Residency, ‘The Garden of EGOLI’

Laura Windvogel in association with ART AFRICA and the Museum of African Design (MOAD), presents ‘The Garden of EGOLI,’ a Johannesburg-based arts residency by Lady Skollie.
 

LADY SKOLLIE GARDEN OF EGOLI
 
Under the pseudonym of Lady Skollie, history of art graduate, Laura Windvogel produces mildly-offensive watercolours and collaborative, contribution-based projects that explore gender roles, sex, sexuality, relationship dynamics and the tug of war between masculine and feminine energy. You can visit Windvogel’s webiste here to find out more about her radio show, ‘Kiss & Tell.’
 
Referencing her own unrealistic expectations of romantic and sexual relations, Windvogel emphasises the games we play at each other’s expense to claim the title of ‘most loved’ and ‘most lusted after.’
 
In the artist’s first residency in Johannesburg (affectionately known as Egoli, from Zulu eGoli, meaning place of gold), Windvogel addresses the narrative of the Garden of Eden, the misconceptions and pressures of monogamy and the untamable sexual thirst inherent in human beings.
 
Windvogel has exhibited at the Michael Stevenson Gallery and the Association for Visual Arts (AVA) in Cape Town, where she showed her first solo exhibition in association with Skattie for ‘Skattie Celebrates.’ She has participated in the FNB JoburgArtFair 2015, THAT ART FAIR 2015 and various group shows, and was also named as one of ART AFRICA‘s ‘Bright Young Things’ for 2015. ‘Garden of EGOLI’ is her first Johannesburg-based project.
 
WHEN:  15 October – 15 November 2015
WHERE:  Museum of African Design (MOAD), 281 Commissioner Street, Maboneng, Johannesburg
