Tour led by:
Mark Coetzee (South Africa), Executive Director and Chief Curator (Zeitz MOCAA).
Each day Zeitz MOCAA offers a short, 15-minutes tour of one object or one artist. This tour is designed for individuals who wish to gain an in-depth knowledge of contemporary art through regular short visits during their lunch break.
Today’s one tour will focus on all the Harvest installations Michele Mathison created for the Dudziro exhibition at the Zimbabwe Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale (2013). These installations were acquired the same year to keep them intact and preserve them for the people of Africa. Mathison’s work interrogates humanity’s dependence on land and traditions of crop cultivation; the value of labour; how symbols of labour become political tools; and the ways in which we embed spiritual significance in nature.
Meet in the Grand Hall area, near the reception desk.
