Doppelgänger | Pedro Pires: Cape Town

15 February - 18 March 2017

Gallery MOMO Cape Town is pleased to present Pedro Pires’s Doppelgänger, after its South African debut at Gallery MOMO Johannesburg last year.


Milica Zivkovic explains that the doppelgänger “is not ‘outside’ time but produced within and determined by its social context” (2000:120).  For Pires this statement resonates with his current body of work, which he created while attending the MOMO Artist Residency in Johannesburg. The title of his exhibition refers to a possible/proposed identity that the sculptures and drawings have, reflecting the social contexts of Johannesburg.
