"Works by Katherine Bull and Fritha Langerman"
2001-05-23 until 2001-06-20
US Art Gallery, University of Stellenbosch
Stellenbosch, , ZA South Africa

The Department of Fine Arts, University of Stellenbosch presents an exhibition of work by Katherine Bull and Fritha Langerman at the US Art Gallery. The exhibition will open on 23 May 2001 at 18.30 and end on 20 June 2001.

Katherine Bull has created a site-specific piece that stems from her investigations of:
- the physical features of the gallery as a distinctly church structure
- the space as a gallery for exhibiting art works
- the visitorsí responses to the space and its contents as a gallery/church sourced from another gallery institution, the visitorís book.

The work forms an extension of her ongoing interest in interrogating how visual records and representations from the past mediate experience and aid/disable Ďorientationí in the present.

Fritha Langermanís work, WATCH, refers to surveillance, monitoring, recording and documenting. It is constructed of a number of objects and images in series of 48 - (half-hour cycles that monitor space over time). The exhibition works within the ambit of installation and is self -reflexive in that meaning is entirely contingent on and embedded in the space itself. The two gallery spaces are used differently. The one makes subtle use of whiteness, shadow and absence - a hidden presence, whereas the second room documents the first and presents it for public consumption.

Both artists graduated with a Masters in Fine Art with distinction from Michaelis Art School, UCT and both have been/ are part-time printmaking lecturers at the University of Stellenbosch.
