JUNCTURE n. joining; place where things join; concurrence of events, state of 
affairs. 

JUNCTURE brings together the work of nine dynamic, contemporary international 
artists from a diversity of practice, positioning, and politics. The central 
commonality within this variation, is the investigation into notions of 
identity made by each artist within their own specific context. Particular 
emphasis is given to the gendered body, racial myths, personal phobias and 
urban youth culture. 

JUNCTURE highlights the exhibition as a meeting place/crossroads of cultural 
expression at a particular point in time. In keeping with this theme the 
exhibition will span two continents, showing in both Cape Town (The Granary) 
and London (Studio Voltaire) and will seek to instigate a debate on the 
repositioning of South African artists within an international context and to 
facilitate a creative dialogue between Cape Town and London. The work on show 
comprises a selection of contemporary visual art including video projections, 
sound works, digital prints, performance and installation. 

The exhibition is accompanied by a full colour catalogue, which includes a 
critical essay by Jacqui Nolte, as well as a statement, by each artist. 

Venue: Studio Voltaire, 1a Nelson’s Row, Clapham Common, London, SW4

JUNCTURE
Cape Town/London
 
ARTISTS:
Don Bury (Canada) will present a video installation which re-frames segments 
of films from cherished popular culture such as ‘Top Gun’ and ‘The Sound of 
Music’ and re-edits them through a homoeroticised lens. 
Robyn Denny (South Africa) will show a four-screen video installation, which 
encloses the viewer in an exploration of the female body consumed by the 
elements of earth, air, fire and water. 
Frances Goodman (South Africa) has created a disturbing sound installation, 
which explores the terrain of phobia and discomfort at the traces left by 
bodily contact. 
Moshekwa Langa (South Africa) has been commissioned to make an installation, 
which will map and trace a terrain in a ceaseless desire to explore the 
anonymity of urban sprawl. 
Harold Offeh (Ghana, Britain) will show a video that exposes physiological 
distortions, which recall historical and current racialised myths. The camera 
becomes a tool to manipulate the spectators’ perceptions. 
Ben Pruskin (Britain) deals with the glamorisation of sex and violence in 
popular fiction. His multi-monitored video installation takes a semiotic form 
to work subliminally on the viewer. 
Robin Rhode (South Africa) explores urdan youth culture and its 
Nike/Television generation through performance. His performance will take 
place at the opening in Cape Town and London, documentation of which will be 
projected for the duration of the exhibition. 
Berni Searle (South Africa) has been commissioned to make a photographic work 
dealing with her preoccupation with using her body performatively as a ground 
for processes of transformation.  She will participate in the 2001 Venice 
Biennale. 
Erika Tan (Singapore, Britain) will construct a sculptural/sound 
installation, which works on the viewer in a visceral manner. Her work 
explores the cross-cultural phenomena of exportation/exploitation. 
All of the artists will be present at the opening.
