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:
mom helped a brother out
men about umuzi
the one name i got to remember – power punching Thomas
The polestyrein was more expensive then ifele le nkomo.
- 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.
this is what upstairs looks like
narrating over his work. the room was silent
relax and be. your are because you create.
a two-level room of works and conversation.
fashion has a time for vintage. time to mingle:
I am glad to have documented this. I hope you got to feel being there at 3 Reserve street.
until next time
