In the night I remember is an exhibition that reflects on the night as a moment of clarity. Covered by the veils of darkness we contemplate the day, we explore imagination and navigate memory, we fight our ghosts, we drift, we dream and give our fantasies and fears life and form. It is in these moments of self-scrutiny that we can interrogate our constructed realities.
Curated by Kabelo Malatsie, In the night I remember brings together a group of young artists who confront and deal with daily nightmares, issues of control and limitation, memory, dreams and aspirations, and self-awareness. They are Igshaan Adams, Justin Davy, Haroon Gunn-Salie, Euridice Kala, Alexandra Karakashian, Siobhan Keam, Mack Magagane, Cinga Samson, Paul Samuels and Bogosi Sekhukhuni.
The exhibition opens on Thursday 20 June, from 6 to 8pm., and closes on Tuesday 25 June.
A performance by Justin Davy, Sweet Melodies, will take place during the opening from 6pm. Thereafter, it will run daily at 12.30pm.
For the finissage on 25 June, Haroon Gunn-Salie's site-specific intervention No Man's Land will take place from 6 to 8pm, in Newtown on the corner of Barney Simon Road and Henry Nxumalo Street.
The gallery is open from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, and Saturday from 10am to 1pm.
