Aldo Brincat’s exhibition, ‘Chasing Concrete Halos’, is divided between two, nearby Cape Town galleries and will open simultaneously on Saturday the 5th of June at 11am. (Chandler House, 53 Church Street, and the Cape Institute for Architecture, 71 Hout Street).

“Having this work divided between two distinctly-different galleries simultaneously, provides me with the opportunity to cleave this body of work neatly into two complimentary halves, while maintaining a single, unified narrative. Inspired by the art practice of South Africans Bronwyn Katz, Willem Boshoff and Paul Emmanuel, (among others), I examine the way we occupy place and time through language, while negotiating our own eventual demise. Texts that we hold close to our hearts, both secular and religious, are reimagined and encoded either by rocks placed in a landscape and photographed, or by drawings of stones, each laid out in a Braille formation. This practice is used to commemorate great moments in our lives, as well as moments of great sadness. These experiences are encoded to avoid them being trivialised or judged. The duality of wanting to announce and yet conceal these experiences is a tension which many of us can relate to.”

“Walking from one gallery to the other (less than 300 meters apart), will allow one to digest what has just been witnessed, before being confronted with the other half of the body of work. The two bodies of work can be visited in any particular order, and I hope the public will enjoy a robust urban experience along the way ‘Chasing Concrete Halos’ deals with themes of certainty and doubt – quite apt for these shifting times.”

‘Chasing Concrete Halos’ is proudly sponsored by SAOTA and Arts Patron, Ms Thabie Moji.
