Hi everyone

We are happy to announce that Lanel van Vuuren's exhibition will be opening on Tuesday. She was our speaker in August and she gave us a glimpse into her experiences as a photographer and also took us through her creative journey that led to this exhibition. Come along and support her at the opening!!

Here is the invitation from the KZNSA Gallery:


Mezzanine Gallery – ‘In Absentia’, Lanel Van Vuuren

It is the awareness of the death of an individual that creates a tangible sense of absence in the photographic portraits that have been constructed for the series ‘In Absentia’ - a re-presentation of the photographic portrait. At the start of this project, the images were single representations of a moment in time that had led to an individual’s death. The artist uses death as a strategy to construct images that give symbolic clues or traces to the manner in which the subject died. The works re-present the lived presence of the individual’s identity amidst material possessions. These portraits can be read as an artistic rebellion against the traditional criteria for a photographic portrait – they create an artificial world where the sitter is absent.
