STEALING THE WORDS

OPENS THU 22.JUL.10  18:00

WORKING WITH THE BODY, FROM THE MOUTH AND USING BREATH TO ‘SPEAK’, BELINDA BLIGNAUT’S NEW INSTALLATION ‘STEALING THE WORDS’ SLOWLY INHABITS THE YOUNGBLACKMAN SPACE DURING THE DAYS LEADING UP TO THE OPENING. THE PERFORMATIVE PROCESS LEAVES BEHIND MESSY, ODDLY FETISHISTIC FORMS WHICH MAY SEEM TO BE FAMILIAR YET NOT, BEINGS THAT COULD BE ALIVE YET AREN’T.

BLIGNAUT’S WORK CONTAINS ELEMENTS OF CONTEMPORARY RITUAL, REPETITION AND ENDURANCE TO FIND THE RESULTS THAT COME WITH DOING SOMETHING FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME THAN IS COMFORTABLE.

THE PIECE SPEAKS ABOUT TRANSFORMATION, TRANSMUTATION, DISRUPTION, CONTAMINATION, ABJECTIFICATION, MARGINALISATION, REPRESSION AND EXPRESSION. VIEWERS ARE INVITED TO STEP CLOSER AND LOOK A LITTLE MORE CAREFULLY.
