When malfunctions and mishaps inspire mixed media art.
"I recently came across photographs on an old hard drive that had been damaged by some kind of technical fault. The result was a set of pictures in which an unexpected mistake and its visual traces seemed to mean something. Using this haphazard little archive as a departure point, I have tried to piece together a series of discernible markers (both abstract and representative) that stand in for the activity that takes place in the studio, where things both do and do not make sense, and where the pressure of the former must often be resisted.” Benjamin Stanwix, Artist.
It was our happy accident to come across this exhibition on until 30 March at Ebony Curated Cape Town, South Africa.15.02.19
