David Krut Projects Cape Town will present Jacob van Schalkwyk’s traveling Solo Project and Print Launch, DOLCEFARNIENTE, which originally opened at David Krut Projects in Johannesburg.

DOLCEFARNIENTE translates as “the enjoyment of idleness”, the sweetness (dolce) of doing (faro) nothing (niente). This exhibition at Montebello Design Centre showcases a new series of prints created in the workshop and his wider experimental practice, spanning a number of disciplines including performance, video,installation and sculpture.
It is a travelling solo project and print launch which will include a series of November Sunday performances. The solo project itself will also develop over time. There are many stories in the works. For example, the prints W and Waltz launched in the show are made on Japanese rice paper which belonged to Alice Goldin.
