Progress Preserved by Art of Brother

Through juxtaposing the strong cultural and socio-political significance of various found objects, and shifting between mediums and processes, Art of Brother create memories – a cultural heritage and lineage from a future society. Their new body of work deals with loneliness, separation anxiety and the determent of technology and social media on our developing African society.

The Rape – Art Exhibition

A new solo exhibition by Sorrel Hofmann entitled The Rape.
