‘Scale’ – Mark Coetzee Fine Art Cabinet, 1999

Held at the Mark Coetzee Fine Art Cabinet, Cape Town, ‘Scale’ featured only three works and most of the materials were recovered and re-used from my previous show ‘Once, again’ at Coetzee’s other, smaller venue.

I had begun Kernel as a student in 1995 and worked on it periodically for four years. Fold was six months in the making, and aside from the smaller cable ties holding the larger ones together, the material was all collected on the streets of Cape Town.
