"I'm not sure what the occasion was but Christian, Barend and I were braaing wors at the studio. It's the woolies lamb sausage we were owed by Renee Holleman from Carpentry 101. it seems fine despite having sat in the fridge at the AVA for a couple of weeks. Christian decides we should get a picture while the three of us are together, we try to set up the shot to look like the one taken by the suicidal guy on Blouberg beach before our escape. The order is wrong though, Barend is on the right, then me and finally Christian, who has to rush into shot before the timer goes off. I gaze "out to sea" while Barend watches the camera. Christian doesn't quite make it, he's still getting into character when the flash goes off. It's still better than the previous attempt though: the camera (resting on the top of the wall between our building and the next) had fallen over in the breeze." Gimberg

Still Raining in CT

The opening night last Wednesday was attended by a hundred Capetonians that braved the weather to view some "fine art". It might almost be snowing, but it's always spring at blank projects:
Norman O'Flynn's Butterfly Project

Gabrielle Alberts curated a coherent museum-quality show with fleamarket art by Sunday painters...
