A group show
AD-Reflex, Thonton Kabeya, Nathani Luneburg, Chris Slabber, Zelda Stroud and Hannalie Taute.
Gallery2 is pleased to present the group exhibition Comfortably numb. Conceived by artitst and curator Johan Conradie, the exhibition takes as a starting point the evocative lyrics of pink Floyd's 1979 song, Comfortably numb.
The exhibition brings together the works by contemporary South African artits which combine visual tension and a strong conceptual vigour, whilst reverberating closely with the ideas and sentiments as expressed through this iconic song.
Envisioned as a dialogue between the works of artistd from different backgrounds, the exhibition explores notions of 'alienation', 'disillusionment', 'delirium', 'disembodiment', 'emotional detachment', 'in-between state', 'invisibility'and 'melancholy'.
