Kate Gottgens: The Swimmer

Dec 3 - Jan 28 2023       Cnr 7th St and 4th Ave, Parkhurst
Whether it's your closest public swimming pool, a pool in the back garden or one at school, the swimming pool has become emblamatic of Johannesburg's summers, particularly for the middle class. This is the focus of Kate Gottgens' exhibition The Swimmer at SMAC Gallery.

With suggestive brushtrokes Gottgens creates vivid oil paintings of time spent around the pool, capturing intimate moments, wealth and transgressive acts. Details swim to the surface and the exhibition casts the viewer as the swimmer where we witness both nostalgic scenes and new ones.
