Gallery @ Glen Carlou
The Gallery houses a collection of contemporary, pop and modern art by South African artists. Mediums are as diverse as installation, photography, contemporary embroidery and ceramics contrast with more traditional painting and sculpture.
Chasing Concrete Halos
This exhibition is an examination of the way that we occupy place and time through language. Aldo Brincat reimagines political, secular, and religious texts by translating and encoding them into his own visual language that he applies through photography and drawing. Through a method of arranging and illustrating rocks, he successfully encodes their image into a unique language, allowing him to pay tribute to wonderful moments, as well as, moments of extreme sadness, without trivialising their impact.
