Turbine Art Fair 2018

Leila Fanner

With an increasing focus on African Art around the world, Eclectica Contemporary aims to showcase artists who thoroughly investigate the dynamics of art-making in the African and South African context, within the ever increasingly globalized art market. The art at Eclectica Contemporary often focuses on practices and materials familiar from art history but which push these boundaries and explore uncharted territories of representation, technique and theory.

For Turbine Art Fair 2018, the gallery features a selection of artists from South Africa, whose art practices demonstrate innovative and exciting approaches to dealing with notions of new African narratives within the contemporary discourse.

Sue Greeff

Sue Greeff is a Cape Town based artist. In 2012 she began her studies at UCT’s Michaelis School of Fine Art, where she later graduated as a painting major in 2015 with distinctions. Her practice is contemporary and conceptual, often based on ideas and experiences from her earlier careers in both the Medical and Interior Design worlds. Sue draws connections be- tween seemingly unrelated ideas and visually explore these, to  nd and understand hidden relationships.

Through her multifaceted body of work, Greeff contemplates and confronts the boundaries of understanding, acceptance and illusion, working across midgrounds and transitions – with memory and experience

Hussein Salim

Born in Karim Sudan in 1966, Hussein Salim, found himself, along with other Sudanese artists and critics during the 1970s and 1980s conflict, exploring the dialogue between the importance of heritage and contemporary Sudanese art. Through his rich impasto paintings, Salim reflects this dialogue using personal symbolism of his dual African and Islamic identity, and through this coalescence his work creates a personal conversation with the viewer of the effects of a diasporic background. Here, his works allow a space for appreciation of diversity. Salim’s forms and colours combine, symbolising his own psyche and subliminal musings on topics of identity and heritage in the contemporary discourse. However, what is critical is that the shapes and forms in his work only leave just enough clues to catalyse thinking rather than explicitly demonstrate an idea.

As a contemporary African artist, Salim is faced with the weight of art history and political dicourse as equally pertinent to his formation as a voice within the conversation of makers. As such, Salim gestures to the work of other painters but also to history, culture, mythology and situation. His work contemplates the ordeals of human life, returning again and again to symbols of love, time and death.

Lars J. Fischedick

Lars has spent the last 25 years fascinated by 3 dimensional spaces. His exploration has been through architecture, model building, sculpture and art installations.

He was born in Germany and started his career with a focus in Contemporary Archi- tecture, collaborating on Christo and Jean-Claude’s Wrapped Reichstag Project for Berlin.

In 2002, he moved to Cape Town and in 2010 Lars decided to pursue a full time career in art. By combining his knowledge of materials with perceptual shifts from aerial to perspective, he has formed a new artistic narrative.

A major influence in Lars’s current work is projective geometry and mathematics, particularly explora- tions from the personal inner perspective to the geometrical infinite. Through his work, Lars gives his audience an experience of space, challenges their perceptual boundaries, and makes invisible aspects of this experience, visible.
