Narrated through Stuurman's lens the exhibition is the artist's own expression of ‘home’ complemented by furniture and decor pieces put together in collaboration with Weylandts. The exhibition unpacks how the home Stuurman was born into has become a theme that translates into everything he creates.
Nostalgia, community, belonging, comfort and storytelling are all infused into this expression. As the artist explains; “Home is the place where we surrender to our vulnerability. A space meant for people to be moulded and ultimately thrive in. It’s where humans discover their own version of comfort, solace and meaning. Home is a place where one is known. Home is also the centre point that allows us to navigate the world.”
Complementing the exhibition are a series of experienced themed 'Sunday Best' gatherings that will combine art, music and food happening on every Sunday of the exhibition with guests invited to dress in their Sunday Best and join in the conversation.
