R3:FORM4RE | Vivien Kohler: Johannesburg

6 June - 13 July 2019

Gallery MOMO Johannesburg is proud to present its first solo show with Vivien Kohler.


“I am fascinated both by the ability of the human spirit to transcend ‘the conceptual decay’, and the unique liminality of the post-apartheid South African city. My works illuminate the contrasts of lived experiences by showing people mentally cocooned from, yet physically enveloped by, life’s detritus. I incorporate, cast, and paint discarded packaging material as a signifier of transience, migration, and displacement of people on the ‘periphery.’
