Fresh Voices 2022 at Guns & Rain Gallery

Saturday Aug 6 - Saturday Aug 20       5 3rd Ave, Parkhurst
This is an annual exhibition that fulfills Guns & Rain's mission statement by presenting new southern African talent and supporting young artists in the earliest stages of their careers. This year's exhibition includes three female artists: Aneesah Girie, Zama Cebsile, and Mwandla Zenaéca Singh. Their work reflects various personal interpretations of what it means to be young, female, and 'South African' in our current society. 
Group Exhibition: Fresh Voices 2022 at Guns and Rain Gallery
Zenaéca Singh, Coolies’ ships (2022) Crystallized sugar on sugar-coated plaster platters.

The exhibition combines their reflections to contextualise how these artists frame and re-frame their social inheritances and lived experiences; things are not what they seem.

Aneesah Girie’s manipulated hijab material considers the representation of gendered Muslim personhood and domesticity. An indictment on South Africa’s relentless rape scourge, Zama Mwandla’s paintings draw on Japanese horror and erotic anime in her depictions of violent revenge fantasies. Meanwhile, Zenaéca Singh explores the history of indentured Indian labour in the sugarfields of KwaZulu-Natal.

Open Mon, Wed, Fri 09:00-16:30pm or by appointment. Contact
