I had to go; painstakingly I scanned the internet for airbnbs’ round the area –  that did not work out – through my mother I found a proposal: Mpilo, I will take you to the exhibition – if you pour petrol. I arrived late, we experienced a tad of traffic leaving Pretoria before joining  the flow in freeway to JHB. Navigating this GPS, I did not panic although the street – Reserve – was hard to find. 3 Reserve str, is a street (and place) in Johannesburg Braamfontein where the  exhibition was held.

The Lost in the world exhibition are works under the theme gentrification, addiction and spiritual poverty – from Umuzi Photo Clubs’ students..

I managed to catch a few photos, i hope they give you a low down on how the evening exhibited:

  • i remember this piece  vividly because mama was ready to buy the crockery and silverware, they ranged from 2c – 5c. I was ready to buy the traditionally made mpahla but it cost R2500- R5000. A solid take on gentrification.
