CAPE TOWN — Artist Kathryn Smith’s loft apartment at 66 Albert Road in the Cape Town suburb of Woodstock is more than just an elevated domestic space with a scenic view of the nearby harbour; it is also an occasional project room for curated and invited events informed
by, and directed at, critical conversations about art practice. Known as serialworks, the lowercase particular venue is this week hosting two one-night exhibitions.
On Thursday, November 11, artist Francis Burger will present her MFA project, The indulgence and exhaustion of the meaningless voice. Completed at the Michaelis School of Fine Arts, the work is a collaboration with Douglas Gimberg, Christian Nerf, Anja de Klerk, Josh Ginsburg, Barend de Wet and Ryan van Huyssteen, amongst others, and is constituted from “loosely collated assemblage of textual and object ‘utterances’ accumulated through a critically reflexive, studio-based and collaboratively oriented research practice”. Less cryptically, it is “a document of what has been done”. The exhibition opens at 18H30.
On Sunday, November 14, Niklas Zimmer, Brendon Bussy and Garth Erasmus, all noted musical
improvisers, will be collaborating for a mini-concert experiment in sound, art and audience. Titled inasmuch, Erasmus will play the mbira, Zimmer drums and Bussy the mandolin. The event is being billed as “an experiment played out in public by musicians”. Bring cushions, advises an invitation.
Both events are RSVP. Email or SMS 082 773 7033 to confirm attendance by Wednesday, November 10.
