ABOUT

ME

I am a South African curator, professional fine artist and concept writer currently residing in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I am the owner of a sole proprietorship company, specialising in exhibition curating, professional art practice, concept development, art event management, gallery management, exhibition design and visual communication. I have exhibited and curated both locally and internationally. Furthermore, I have expertise in art collection management and subsequent academic research skills focussing on both African and international contemporary art. I am currently busy with a PhD focussing on curatorial practice and nonhuman ethical systems in bio and tech art. In 2015 I completed a Master’s degree in Visual Arts within the interdisciplinary field of art and science, specialising in bio art and ethics. As an artist, my field of interest lies in the resistance against unethical practices on living beings through the application of bio art, transgenic art and biotechnology. I have been exhibiting professionally since 2007. My artworks are included in public and private collections.

 

As a curator, I have spent the last two years focussing on the expansion of my knowledge within the private sector of curating. Refining my skills and elaborating my own brand has been top priority for my business. I currently focus on exhibitions where multiple disciplines of art, science, technology and design overlap, exploring and introducing new media with intricate concepts to the public. Since 2014, various services have been executed in both traditional and contemporary art exhibitions, including traditional and contemporary African art, traditional and contemporary international art, academic art, educational art, social art, bio art, tech art, sound art, kinetic art, sustainable art and design, wearable art and more. The beauty about new media art is its dynamic nature to introduce important concepts where life as we know it is in play. The problem is often its accessibility to the broader public. Through carefully considered curatorship, strong artworks and creative execution, art can shed light on issues from complex communal systems to private inner thoughts. A mirror I love holding up.
