1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair London 2017 Virtual Tour

06 Oct 2017

Artists: Mohamed Lekleti (Morrocco), Soly Cissé (Senegal) and Jenna Burchell (South Africa)

This year the Sulger-Buel Lovell booth is curated by South African art critic and independant curator, Andrew Lamprecht. The exhibition is titled: 'Trop Comprendre' and is derived from a statement made by Soly Cissé (whilst recuperating from a serious operation) where the artist stated that sometimes he felt like he ‘understands the world too much’ (trop comprendre le monde). This sense of weariness (and wariness) as well as the confidence that underscores the statement seems like an accurate representation of the feelings of many African artists today. 

In the choice and contextualisation of art for this presentation, the curator will attempt to forge links between the history and legacy of the ancient African landscape with the challenges that Africans face in terms of the contemporary industrial landscape the social and economic conditions present to those that trace their roots to the continent, wherever they live.

Another interactive, and quite interesting, piece was Homing by Jenna Burchell. Presented by the Sulger-Buel-Lovell from Cape Town, this evolutive “memory harp” plays sounds taken from our everyday environments, allowing the visitors to create their own tune. And, as the artist regularly adds new strings and sounds from the cities where the piece is shown, Homing also appears as a living organism, a universal creature, building delicates links between people and cultures from various countries.
