An exhibition by Liza Grobler | Spier Wine Tasting Centre
10 May – 26 July 2013
The exhibition presents a selection of mixed media drawings and beadworks, created in association with the Qubeka Bead Studio, “…that dart between our tangible reality, the fantastical spaces we fabricate and the borrowed words that swim through our minds.” - Grobler
Having completed numerous works in collaboration, the Qubeka Bead Studio and Grobler have established a rare and ongoing working relationship.
Qubeka was founded, in association with the Jeanetta Blignaut Art Consultancy, in 2007 by the pioneering members of the original Qalo Bead Studio. Today, its principle artists, Neliswa Skiti, Nolubabalu Kanku and Mandisa Masina are training and employing other beaders in order to keep up with the demand for their highly unique works created from glass seed beads.
The work above was based on a poem by Danie Marais.
The other two exhibitions are Maanfabet, by Breyten Breytenbach and the group exhibition More Than Words, which showcase work by Olaf Bishoff, Willem Boshoff, Tom Cullberg, William Kentridge and Colin Richards.
