The Cosmic Kiosk
Part shantytown souvenir shop, part shamanic medicine temple, The Cosmic Kiosk gestures toward a number of spaces. A place where potted plants rub against framed drawings, rusty tin cans lean up against carefully constructed assemblages. The viewer is invited to get lost amongst the clutter, joining the dots and freely building associations and meaning within the chaos. The collection of objects and images attempt to blend and blur the boundaries between gallery, studio, home and place of worship. The site-specific installation aims to deliberately confuse the focus on where art begins and reality ends.

“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.”

R3.4 million buys you Love
ISSUED BY: STRAUSS & CO | 18 MAR 2014 13:31
A rare and undocumented painting by the celebrated South African artist, Stanley Pinker, set a new world record for the artist when it sold for R3.4 million at Strauss & Co's auction, having been hotly contested between ten telephone bidders and buyers in the packed auction room. The painting Love gripped the imagination of buyers at the auction that proved the South African art market continues to show great strength for works of quality and that are fresh to the market.

In an era of deep economic and social crisis, the Museum chooses to display a contemporary work of art imbued with the notions of interculturality, of social solidarity and equity, of peace.
A now abandoned boat which has been used to transfer immigrants is covered with more than 10,000 tamata (votive offerings), both handcrafted from beverage cans and factory- made, incised with the names, dates and places of birth of immigrants.

The installation focuses on the journey as transition from despair to hope, from death to life, expressing the constant human quest. Votive offerings, a timeless symbol of the human drama and hope, materialize the agonizing request for divine mediation. The work focuses on the courage of the human soul and the power of life itself.

The Byzantine Museum, this year celebrating its 100th anniversary, is presenting...
