“'What do you know about my Image Duplicator?' screams the mad whitecoat in an early work. That the machine ran like clockwork for decades. Almost anything could be transformed into a Lichtenstein - and almost nothing remains striking for long when it's been condensed into a cold, hard reductio ad absurdum. Lichtenstein was always his own best judge: 'Anti-contemplative, anti-nuance, anti-mystery, anti-movement, anti-light.' Even his self-portrait is - acutely - a mirror. An object very hard to depict (in effect, an invisible surface until something appears within it) and at which he himself excelled. But, in this case, the mirror is gleaming and empty, reflecting nothing back but itself.”
Michael Stevenson is pleased to present an exhibition of new and recent work by Berni Searle. Seen in South Africa for the first time, Interlaced is a major three-screen video installation commissioned for Searle's solo exhibition opening in Bruges, Belgium, in April and touring to the Netherlands and France. The piece presents a site-specific engagement with Bruges, one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe and an important international trading city since the 13th century. Of particular interest to Searle were the effects of contact and exchange, location and dislocation, that these encounters may have given rise to. exhibition runs from 26 May until 23 July 2011

Michael Stevenson is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Paul Edmunds. As Edmunds observes, many of us have a long and close relationship with music. From elements which are often non-narrative, mostly repetitive and largely abstract, we extract or assemble meaningful experience, repeatedly. In a series of pencil drawings, a linocut and two sculptures, Edmunds uses only line and its sculptural equivalent, edge, to explore visual correspondents for music and sound, and their constituent parts. The exhibition opens on Thursday 14 April, 6-8pm

ABOUT 'KAROO-KADO'TJIES': In her seminal exhibition, Karoo-kado’tjies, this visual raconteur delivers a collection of engaging works of an exceptional standard, based around Die Koup and Tanqua Karoo areas, with the “Voortrekker nude” as main subject. The exhibition title, Karoo-kado’tjies, may be translated as “small gifts from the Karoo”, and reference objects which resonate with Kruger’s childhood memories of the Karoo. Often rusted and weathered, these objects are tangible representations of the transience to which all forms of life are subject to. SHOW DATES: 24 MARCH – 21 APRIL 2011
