Masixole Feni: A Drain on Our Dignity

25 October 2017 - end February 2018

In 2015 Masixole Feni won the Ernest Cole Award for his project - A Drain on Our Dignity. Feni is a
freelance photojournalist who documents social issues in and around Cape Town, primarily the lack
of service delivery and life of the marginalised. Photographing the lack of sanitation was not pleasant for him, but he did not want a photographer from outside the community telling their stories while he watched on. After all, “that too would be A Drain on Our Dignity and that’s what inspired this project”.Feni’s representation of inequality, structural violence and his own imaginative response through photography is in itself a reflection on human creativity despite the limits imposed by power. 

 

 

Gideon Mendel: Drowning World

17 October 2017 - 25 February 2018

A powerful exhibition by South African-born contemporary photographer, Gideon Mendel. The 3 discrete bodies of photographic work, Submerged Portraits, Floodlines, Watermarks and a video titled The Water Chapters are part of an ongoing project that began a decade ago, where Mendel travels to various countries in the aftermath of devastating floods. The photographs demonstrate the artist's travels to various parts of the world and capture the reality of floods across cultural and geographical boundaries and illustrate the pervasive impact of climate change.
