Over 300 Durbanites braved the steamy summer weather to fill all three of the KZNSA Galleries for the opening of our annual KZNSA Members exhibition. This year’s theme is ‘URBANITY’.

A highlight was the presentation of the prizes. These cash awards are supported by the Emanuel family in memory of the late Joan Emanuel, a long-standing member of the KZNSA and passionate supporter of the visual arts. Thank you to our invited judges Alec Botha, Witty Nyide and Nathi Gumede and to the Emanuel family for making all this possible!

In the progression toward the ideal civilised environment, there exists the power to influence and be influenced, and man’s primal nature still endeavours to control!

This short digital film is my response to a busy intersection in the city of Durban.

This mattress is a ‘facility’ in an abandoned building which is used by sex workers who bring their clients here because of the privacy and comfort it offers.
