Naomi Meyer, Elizabeth Gunter Kuns 2024-03-14

Coert Mommsen Kuns 2024-01-22

artwords: existential notes

Azille Coetzee artwords 2023-11-29

"I wasn’t prepared for what I would find at the exhibition, which is like stepping into a poem. The gallery is a page, the walls are the line, and I – I am the eye that flits from word to word, that lingers."

Benjamin Coutouvidis, Jean Dreyer, Katherine Glenday artwords 2023-11-29

Kadie Salmon, Klara du Plessis artwords 2023-10-31

"Incipit. Scree. Explicit. was first exhibited at Artexte, the archive, research centre and residency programme already mentioned. It’s nice to think that it’s moved into a gallery space now, as part of the artwords exhibition at Glen Carlou – from a textual to a visual context."

artwords – on memory and loss

Emma Willemse, Elrie Joubert, Laurel Holmes artwords 2023-10-30

The wildfire that tore across Table Mountain and on to UCT’s campus destroyed not only the physical archive of materials and records, but also aspects of historical memory. The object makes visible and tangible the loss of a library, representing not only UCT’s Jagger Library but also other archives, where materials and objects have been lost forever, and, in this case, where numbers (Dewey Decimal Classification) embody a larger set of meanings.

artwords: UT PICTURA POESIS – Kunsten in gesprek

Yves T'Sjoen artwords 2023-09-22

"Voor deze notitie op vraag van Jean Dreyer heb ik ervoor gekozen de intrigerende 'intermedial gap' tussen woord en beeld kort aandacht te geven. In mijn onderzoeksgebied, de letterkundige neerlandistiek, wordt nogal wat onderzoek naar intermedialiteit ondernomen. Ik word geboeid door semantische en poëticale relaties tussen schilderkunst en poëzie."
