‘SIMULACRUM’ – AGOG GALLERY

March 10 – April 7 2018 / JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

Following the success of his previous exhibitions, ‘The Gift of Water l,ll & lll’ at Gallery One11 and AVA in Cape Town, and the Melrose Gallery in Johannesburg – artist and activist, SaySay.Love, is heading to Maboneng with a new showcase entitled ‘Simulacrum: Re-imagined Realities?’. This exhibition thematically places the life-force that is water at the centre of this showcase of work, and challenges us to question our mortality – where we come from, and where we are going – and what reality we envision for ourselves in the near, and distant future.

‘Simulacrum: Re-imagined Realities’ takes us on a journey of the artists own relationship with water starting with the artwork Baptism, which reflects on the genesis of life – emoting images of DNA – the sequencing of all living things – which ultimately shapes our destiny.

The exhibition is also supplemented by works from ‘The Gift of Water’ which reflect the journey and relationship SaySay has with this life-giving element – captured in its various forms and guises – highlighting the scarcity and preciousness of this valuable resource.

Founded in 2017, Agog Gallery is located in Maboneng – arguably the cultural capital of Johannesburg – and finds its inspiration in the belief that the meaning of art is also the meaning of the artist. Agog gallery is dedicated to the promotion of both local and international artists, and sets out to connect artists with collectors while maintaining a standard of high-quality, yet affordable art.

‘THE GIFT OF WATER: CHAPTER II’ / THE AVA GALLERY

December 28 2017 – January 13 2018 / Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA

“Inspired by the natural world around him, it was only fitting that saysay would return the favour to his source of inspiration, as well as the global source of life; water. ‘Chapter Two’ promises to be a creative extension of saysay’s unique style, including larger than life images and awe-inspiring compositions.

Saysay has been documenting nature’s most precious and inspiring occurrences, translating his experiences into an aesthetic feast for the eyes. His visual abstraction achieves a mystique that is often undocumented within photography – a medium most known for its realism and accuracy.”

 ‘THE GIFT OF WATER’ / ONE11 GALLERY

November 23 – December 4th 2017 / Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA

“SaySay.Love – a fine art photographer working only with his iPhone – sees the limitations of using his phone as both a challenge and an opportunity. Born with an optical disability that hinders his perception of depth, speed and distance, SaySay’s artistic vision remains pure. It is vibrant, quick and eclectic, and transports his viewers into the very fabric of our being, lending an insight and breakthrough into the very workings of our complex planet. SaySay’s photographic works present a calm and considered observation of nature, expressed through his own personal painterly style as feeling throughout the various images.”
