Exciting South African Photographers To Showcase Their Works At Quoin Rock


1 December 2020  -  Quoin Rock

Quoin Rock Wine Estate, situated in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands prepares for its inaugural art exhibition happening from 8 December 2020 until 28 March 2021. Featuring contemporary photography by an exciting range of artists, the showcase is a point of departure from traditional wine farm exhibitions.

Art, intellect and passion translate perfectly into what has been created at Quoin Rock and interpret the philosophies of the current custodians, the Gaiduk family. Surrounded by beauty, visitors can explore the estate, making their way through the cellar walkway, where the works of art will be displayed, and continue to enjoy the Gåte restaurant and sprawling lawn areas.

Entitled Content, this group exhibition includes work by the late photography master David Goldblatt, established photographer Ashley Walters and exciting new artists Noncedo Gxekwa, Strauss Louw, Elsa Smit and Nina Zimolong. The exhibition is curated by celebrated fine art photographer Daniel Naudé, who made a name for himself with his striking animal photography in 2006 and continues to enjoy international success.

The artists have drawn inspiration from the theme, Content, and their interpretations have resulted in a meandering cultural journey presented to the viewer through the lenses of South African photographers. Sometimes stark interpretations of a frozen moment in time; sometimes kaleidoscopic swirls creating reinterpretations of the original subject; often bold, unapologetic reality laid bare. Reflections on the past. New ways of viewing the present. Tentative anticipation for the future. A visual meditation on the world around us.

An addition to the exhibition is the opportunity for visitors to view the works with an audio tour on their cellphones which is scripted, and sometimes narrated, by the artists themselves. The audio tour is available in English, Afrikaans, Xhosa, French and German. Visitors can also choose to experience the exhibition by reading the information plaques on display.

There is no cost to view the exhibition, which will be on display from Monday to Sunday (11am – 4pm) from 8 December 2020 until 28 March 2021. For more information, contact info@quoinrock.co.za.
