Marlene Dumas and Others in “Mother Nature: Art and Psychology in Conversation, an Exhibition on Maternal Sensitivity”

Broken WhiteIntimate RelationsSuspectSelected WorksWet Dreams

Much of art and most of modern psychology has emerged from investigating the relationship between caregiver and child, and the story of this relationship is told through the perspective of art and psychology in an exhibition running from the 11th of November till the 12th of February, at the Sasol Art Museum, Stellebosch University. Featured artists include Marlene Dumas – internationally acclaimed painter – who also opened the exhibition. South African photographer Jodi Bieber, sculptor Claudette Schreuders and visual artist Lyn Smuts are also exhibiting their works along with others:

Between Dogs and WolvesLiberated Voices

The image of a mother and her infant represents, in archetypal form, our earliest experience of being related. From this theme, much Art and most of modern Psychology has emerged. The exhibition will highlight key elements in the relationship between the primary caregiver and child, from the perspective of Art as well as Psychology. The former will provide an interpretation of this primary relationship in our time, as experienced through the lens of Art. The latter provides longitudinal research findings on what primary caregivers do naturally. Longitudinal multi-cultural research shows that sensitive (and insensitive) mothers all over the world, independent of socio-economic status, level of education or cultural background, respond to their infants in the same ways.

Diane Victor artwork

TAXI-013: Diane VictorSouth African artist, Diane Victor is exhibiting her work in New York for the first time, her exhibition “Recent Work” opened at David Krut Projects on the 28th of October. The collection features smoke drawings and etchings and will be on view until the 18th of December 2010 :

It’s with great pleasure that David Krut Projects, New York, presents Diane Victor – Recent Work. In her first New York exhibition, South African artist, Diane Victor, presents a group of etchings and smoke drawings fraught with social commentary and, at times, an eerie and lurid reflection of the world around us. Throughout Victor’s imagery there is a tension and play between strength and fragility. Both her mark-making and the narratives presented highlight the ephemeral, delicate moments of life while also reminding us of their raw, hard-edged counterparts.

Judge Albie Sachs Prefers ‘Soft Vengeance’ for Hard Knocks

Freedom-fighting lawyer and author of The Strange Alchemy of Life and Law, Albie Sachs, has collaborated and consulted with David Krut publishing to bring forth the book Art and Justice edited by Bronwyn Law-Viljoen. Recently, he visited the University of New South Wales where he received an honorary law degree. While he was there he spoke to Rick Feneley about forgiveness, gay marriage and how extending his arm in forgiveness was the right thing to do:

Albie Sachs is not here to lecture us on our human rights shortcomings. The South African resistance lawyer who fought apartheid, who lost an arm when the regime blew up his car, who shook the hand of one of the assassination plotters – and who helped Nelson Mandela build a modern democracy – will not presume to tell Australia how to treat its indigenous population.

Nor will he tell Julia Gillard to allow gay marriage, even though South Africa’s Constitutional Court, from which Mr Sachs retired as a judge last year, did that five years ago.
