Upcoming exhibition: DOMESTIC DEPARTURES 11-24 OCT

Kalk Bay Modern is pleased to present our upcoming exhibition Domestic Departures.  A group exhibition by artists who have worked together for a number of years, here and in Italy, with teachers/artists Rose Shakinovsky and Claire Gavronsky aka Rosenclaire.  

"What is the cultural construct of the domestic and what would be considered a departure?
Same sex couples? Immigrant families with different cultural and religious practices? Is it the suburban house sheltering the ideal heterosexual family all happily cooking, mending and mowing in domestic bliss? The notion of a fully functional realm in which inflexible, habitual codes of behaviour support predetermined, mapped out paths? Or is it possibly a primary locus, of acceptance and understanding of difference. Domestic, is indigenous to our thought, to our respective nations…we produce it and live by it or fight it and depart from it.

Artists include Cathy Abrams, Nicola Bailey, Mary Anne Botha, Christina Bryer, Erica Elk, Katherine Glenday, Anne Graaff, Josie Grinrod, Michelle Kriek, Lorienne Lotz, Tracy Megan, Taryn Millar, Kathy Robins, Cheryl Rumbak, Lyn Smuts and Gwen van Embden.  Domestic Departures will address contemporary issues of gender amd women's experience of the domestic in mixed media including ceramic sculpture, installation, prints and painting.
Opening Thursday 11th October by Ingrid de Kok, and running till 24th October 2012.
