Aesthetically Vogue exhibition at Eclectica Design and Art

With the arrival of a new season, comes the time for reflection and new discussions – not to mention new creations! At ECLECTICA Design & Art, the Spring/Summer Exhibition is inspired and informed by ideas of how aesthetics can remain relevant without the concern of time of the influence of fads. As such, the work that has been selected strives to embody the different ways in which work can be successfully aesthetic – this means that the work is able to stand as a piece that has value based on the beauty or aesthetic content, over and above context. Aesthetically Vogue speaks to the timelessness of creativity and the appeal of how innovative expressions can result in aesthetic adventures and new ideas of being. Intrinsically linked to philosophy, aesthetics in art provides a fascinating platform for further discourse and investigation around notions of value and beauty. With this new exhibition, showcasing works of numerous local artists as well as iconic furniture pieces, ECLECTICA Design & Art seeks to continue the conversations begun with the debut show, furthering questions around what it means to create art in contemporary society and how to create work that is successfully aesthetic. The group show will feature work by the following artists: Marna Hattingh Matthew Hindley Norman Ó Flynn Ronald Muchatuta Chris Denovan Birgit de Boer Junaid Sènèchal – Senekal Sarah Danes Jarrett Peter Pharoah
