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:
TO EXHIBITION OPENING TUESDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER AT 6PM
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
