I didn’t get a catalogue this time, so am admittedly at a bit of a loss about the work (I’m not exactly known for being an expert in African sculpture). There’s a little bit about it on the Siebrits site.
Still, the stuff is beautiful; is it just me, or is more and more of this kind of work being accepted as contemporary by the likes of the mainstream since Rikhotso’s Kebble win? It’s about time, and Warren Siebrits would likely be the first to agree – he’s been supporting local art that challenges traditional notions of the contemporary, and contemporary notions of the traditional, for ages. Him smart.
