Tuesday 26 May to Saturday 11 July
Erdmann Contemporary Art Gallery, Gardens
Dumbfounded by the president’s State of the Nation address, a group of South African comic artists will present their personal responses to SONA at an exhibition entitled ‘Speechless’.
The exhibited comic artworks contain no dialogue, a symbolic gesture that represents South Africans who have been rendered speechless by SONA, and the malaise that surrounds South African politics.
The exhibition also takes a stab at South African democracy, where despite having 20 years of freedom, a state of voicelessness remains.
Living in a country with 11 official languages, Speechless represents a unanimous voice conveyed through visuals.
