For The past 2 and a half years, I felt I hit a glass ceiling, with what I was / am mostly known for. With that came a need for some kinda change. I knew there was a lot I could do as a creative but still felt like it wasn’t enough for me, since I felt I was being marginalized and that led to being put in a certain category that I felt I didn’t fit to cause I know I’m a bit more progressive than that. _______________________________________ The creative industry can be mediocre at times, especially when we base the metric of talent with influence through social media, popularity and being extroverted. A lot gets lost through this idea of popularity contest, cause we end up putting the lens on things that have nothing to do with the work. _______________________________________ So with this Journey I switch lanes, but keep the same car. What I’m about to present on the 18th Of January 2020 is What I call my “Illmatic” by @nas, my “college dropout” by Ye. My “Mad Villian” by @mfdoom. This is my Debut Album after have dropped so many singles and features. _______________________________________ So I invite you to the “shadows of my freedom”, come share this moment with me. @kalashnikovvgallery On the 18th Of January 2020.
THERE’S GLITTER IN MY SOUP! BY STEVEN COHEN is also on at the Stevenson in Parktown North from 10am – 1pm on 18 January. Catch a series of self-portraits intimately crafted using make-up. These self-portraits are an extension of Cohen’s three-decade-long performance practice.
Take a hike up the Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve if Botanics, geology, archaeology, history and cultural interests are your thing. The reserve boasts a surprising diversity of interests. Some of which are larger game such as zebra, red hartebeest, and black wildebeest. It’s open from 7am – 7pm.
