Anton Kannemeyer: E is for Exhibition
JOHANNESBURG  •  Stevenson Gallery  •  1 October - 13 November 2015

E is for Exhibition takes us deep into Kannemeyer's thought processes and studio practice, bringing together his range of working methods that include comics, sketches, text-based works and large-scale paintings. Partly autobiographical and resolutely observational, Kannemeyer continues to draw attention to our perceptions of difference, the power of the image and the insidious potential of language.

Satirising everything from himself to commodity fetishisation, many of these works use the day-to-day realities of South Africa to shine a light onto universal issues, such as systemic racism, religious dogma, power and censorship. Never hesitant to offer a counter-perspective, E is for Exhibition engages the larger themes of race, sex, class and politics, reminding us that even though the times have changed, many debates have not fundamentally evolved.
