7 February - 3 March
All of the works on this show, produced over the past
two years, are concerned with notions of atonement in contemporary
South Africa. I am particularly interested in the necessary distinction
between outward or public actions and private attitudes, which are in
themselves essentially impossible to verify or even ascertain.
Although Jordan Tryon recently graduated with his MFA from Rhodes
University, he has already been selected as a finalist in two of the
most illustrious art competitions in South Africa; the Absa Atelier
2004 and the Brett Kebble Awards 2005, prior to cancellation. During
2005, Jordan Tyron exhibited as part of the João Ferreira
show and this will be his first solo exhibition.
Opening reception: Wednesday 7 February at
The Bread of Presence, 2006. Flour, epoxy resin and stencils
12 sheets, installation dimensions variable.
