Constructed exhibition

■ A wide spectrum of works by Stephan Erasmus, titled Constructed, will be on display from Sunday September 2 to September 30, at IS ART Gallery, 11 Huguenot Street, Franschhoek. In his writing of love letters, Stephan samples text from various sources such as poetry, music lyrics and biblical text as a starting point. The use of existing text is significant in that it becomes emotional triggers that exist in public and has links to specific emotional conditions. The encryption mimics a physical act of writing sorrowful love letters, sewing the letters together to become a web, in which the reader can get lost in. Stephan is a practicing artist and curator based in Johannesburg, and his work is held in various collections: The Bibliotheca Alexandrina Alexandria, Egypt, Johannesburg Art Gallery and ABSA collection, to name but a few.
