The artworks, described by the gallery as pieces that “require a sharper focus, a keener gaze, a lingering attention,” play with scale and encourage the viewer to come closer to each piece, setting new parameters for the gallery space and curators.

The exhibition opens on Tuesday 5 June at 6:30pm. The Barnard Gallery is located at 55 Main Street, Newlands, Cape Town.
