Feast Your Eyes not only brings together works by Henk Serfontein, Patrick Bongoy, Marlise Keith, Zemba Luzamba, NomThunzi Mashalaba, Norman O’Flynn and Shakes Tembani, but will also enable visitors to partake in a unique immersive VR experience that will take you inside the artists’ studios in Southern Africa to see what inspires them.
Founded in 1987 in Johannesburg, Nando’s have one of the largest collections of Southern African art in the world. As one of the sponsors of this year’s 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair, they wanted to provide an international platform for some of the Southern African artists who have participated in career development programmes run by Spier Arts Trust, an arts initiative supported by Nando’s.
Working in a variety of media from mosaic to painting, each of the artists explore complex themes. Cape Town-based Zemba Luzamba documents the lives of immigrant communities while Norman O’Flynn, often working with silk embroidery and glass beads, uses his art to express ‘personal pleasures and struggles.’
All works in the show will be available for sale, with prices ranging from £50 to £6,000.
And to compliment your enjoyment of the art, there will also be a limited Nando’s menu available for £5. Art and food? Sounds like our ideal weekend excursion.
Opening times: Friday–Saturday 11am–9pm; Sunday noon–6pm.
