Photos from the opening night of Woman.Object.Corpse at the Centre for African Studies Gallery at the University of Cape Town. In picture 3, that is Anton Metrowich, the amazing sound artist who recorded my poem and created the phenomenal soundscape around it. The success of the poem is because of Anton’s astounding ability to capture voice and transform it so accurately to what I had asked for.
In picture 4 is poet and performer Christie Van Zyl, whose poems This is the African Woman? and Mourning on Commission were also part of the exhibition and who performed on opening night too.
Woman.Object.Corpse confronts the reality of violence against women and the many ways it plays out in our lives today – from the extreme and disturbing acts, to the seemingly innocent socialisation of young girls and boys to know that “girls play with dolls, boys play with guns” (as explored by Jade Gibson in her piece, War Play).
The exhibition runs until May 9.
