RE-IMAGINING REALITIES ?
The AGOG Gallery, Johannesburg South Africa
March 10th - April 7th 2018
Following the success of his exhibition ‘The Gift of Water: Chapter III’ at the Melrose Gallery in Johannesburg,
artist and visual activist, SaySay.Love is heading to Maboneng with a new body of work.
‘Simulacrum: Re-imagined Realities?’ questions societal hierarchies,
science and the effects of these realities on future generations.
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.
