27 October - 9 December 2016
Please join us for a glass of wine on Thursday the 27th of October at 6:30pm. "Sublimation" by South African artist, André Stead is proudly hosted by the Christopher Møller Gallery.
‘The transparent nature of the artwork is a symbol of our ability to be aligned with others in such a way that we can understand their pain or joy as if it were our own’, says Stead. A view at stark odds to that typically associated with sculpture – that it is a thing to be looked at and revered at a distance – Stead reminds art that art need not be reverential, that its beauty can and must also reside in its connectivity. And in this regard, his sentiment powerfully echoes that of Martin Buber’s I and Thou.
