Ordentlikheid: A Creolised Object | Stephané E. Conradie: Cape Town

1 - 17 June 2017

Gallery MOMO Cape Town is proud to present Ordentlikheid: a creolised object, a pop-up exhibition of new work by Stephané E. Conradie.

 

 

This body of work focuses on objects found in lower middle and working class homes in South Africa. Though seemingly only used for aesthetic purposes or seen as common place, Conradie suggests that they could provide an important insight and contribution to an understanding of identity formation, by studying what people attach value to and how they create meaning in the private spheres of their homes. The home and the material culture it represents can also form micro representations of how we have encoded our understanding of the world and how this translates into our private domains.
