SAINT-NAZAIRE  •  Le Grand Cafe  •  Ongoing
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of South Africa first democratic elections, Le Grand Cafe Centre for Contemporary Art presents two exhibitions revealing South African artists' commitment to their country's social and political past and present history.

Trouble gathers artworks by Jane Alexander, William Kentridge, Thando Mama, Jo Ractliffe, and Tracey Rose, which explore "the unstable and fluid expanse that exists between an internalised, personal space and an exterior, outer reality during a time of intense social transformation. Memory, identity, desire, survival, guilt, reconciliation thus appear through the works this exhibition brings together, highlighting a recurring use of film and video as the unstable and fluid expanse itself. The still photography presented constitutes a tense point in this expanse, questioning the vision's reality and the way that images are constructed.
