Sue Williamson has a show on at the Johannes Stegmann Art Gallery in Bloemfontein, which also features two new video works.
‘No More Fairy Tales’ is on from the 18th August to the 16th September 2016.
The exhibition is part of the project titled ‘Trauma, Memory and Representations of the Past: Transforming Scholarship in the Humanities and the Arts’, funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and led by Professor Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela
In the exhibition, ‘No More Fairy Tales’, Sue Williamson reflects upon the long term effects of the violence of Apartheid in South Africa, twenty years after the formation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. In two new video works, the focus is on the reality that the painful trauma of Apartheid deeply affected not only those who had to live through it, but continues to be a defining factor in the lives of their children.
