Our Heritage: Past - Present - Future

This exhibition presents a selection of art works from the Gallery’s permanent collection which reflect the diversity of our national cultural heritage. Besides conventional media, art works on this exhibition have also been fashioned from found objects and natural fibres. Heritage represents our history and identity, our past, our present, and our future. An old family farm in KwaZulu-Natal served as inspiration for Sue Akerman’s fibre art work. The title, Un-titled, refers to issues of land redistribution. Viewers may discover that the work has been stitched together from surprisingly familiar objects.
