Open 09:00–17:00.       10 High St, Melrose Arch
share
This international collaboration between Cape town artist Willie Bester and Austria’s Wolf Werdigier, sets a bold tone that is both triumphant and challenging, topical and celebratory.  Both artists are also prominent activists and their work seeks to continue a discussion about invoking memory and releasing trauma while upholding truth, freedoms and our shared humanity.

For Bester his art speaks to the need to never forget or allow the dehumanization and silencing of black South Africans that was experienced during apartheid, while Werdigier's work retains the importance of continuing to remember and confront the historic injustices inflicted upon his Jewish ancestors. Exploring themes of loss, remembrance and the healing power of memory, the artworks on display include sculpture, installation, painting and photography.
