- Anastasia Pather
‘Meeting you’ is a live exhibition and quiet painting performance by Johannesburg artist Anastasia Pather. The work is a visual exploration into the architecture of memory and the politics of association. It is as uncomplicated and ungendered as a reclining nude that simultaneously evokes visceral action and abstract reaction that is both empowered and disarmed by its superficiality and preconceptions.
‘Meeting you’ is an introductory meeting with Cape Town and invites muses and interdisciplinary collaborators to explore the transience of ‘jazz bonding’.
Anastasia Pather is a reluctant artist, finger painter and female who is concerned with surface.
