Ancestry, colonial heritage, family mythology, Diaspora and identity in a modern African democracy are explored. The core group of participating artists work as a loose collective, meeting regularly to exchange ideas and source material, as well as engage with each others' working processes. The artists involved work in diverse mediums, including embroidery, screen printing, painting, ceramics, video, collage and collection - based installation. The over arching theme relates to an ongoing, playful engagement with the notion of 'category error', a term borrowed from philosophy, here referring to the conceptual and material transformations that inform their creative practices.
Walk about with participating artists from Category Error 2 will take place on Saturday the 18th of December 2010 at 11h30
