Artist Keneilwe Mokoena advances collaboration through Numbers

Artist Keneilwe Mokoena has curated the exhibition Numbers, which will open on 4 August 2018 at Hazard Gallery in the Maboneng precinct, Johannesburg.

     Numbers is intended as a collaborative project that investigates the fundamental language of the universe, the planes of possibility when space becomes boundary-less, allowing for interactions of diverse mediums and diverse artists – affording equal opportunity to the emerging and established artist.
     How do we go beyond merely occupying space… reimagining and transforming the gallery space in a way that is representative and honest to our work? How do we harness the expansive potential of reshaping and reforming gallery spaces… opening them up to our stories and allowing ourselves to move freely through these physical spaces.
     Sound, sight and touch fold together in this exhibition largely comprised of sound & video art, game coding, photography, drawing, ceramics and more – embracing complexity, nuance and play.

Artwork by Keneilwe Mokoena

     Throughout history, humans have associated symbolism with numbers. Numbers have held great significance in anthropological, philosophical, aesthetic and speculative contexts – a logical quantification of abstract ideas and phenomena.
     This exhibition investigates our profound relationship with numbers. Artists were invited to offer their own interpretations of the concept from a myriad of perspectives. It initiates a dialogue of the phenomena behind numbers through an immersive installation alongside a range of collectible artworks. The concepts are presented in two parts: this is presented in the form of tape drawings, sound and video to create an immersive multi-sensory experience; and a multi-disciplinary installation created through the collaborative effort of Keneilwe Mokoena and Naledi Chai.
     Exhibiting artists include: Naledi Chai, Boitumelo Mazibuko, Keneilwe Mokoena, Helena Uambembe Amogelang Maepa, Daphney Ntahane, Cow Mash, Manyaku Mashilo, DuduMore, Zubaidah Adams, Shari Banhegyi, Maaike Bakker, Elrie Joubert, Courtney van der Watt, Selwyn Steyn and Tsoku Maela.
     Keneilwe Mokoena and Naledi Chai have started a crowdfunding campaign in order to raise funds for the exhibition and installation.
     The crowdfunding campaign started on 20 June 2018 and will end on 21 July 2018 with a milestone of R15 000. The campaign rewards include various drawings by Keneilwe Mokoena, a limited edition Art Zine + Soundscape CD and more.
