Mimesis – Moran Kliger Solo Exhibition at SA Jewish Museum

by | Feb 14, 2024 | Arts & Culture, News | 0 comments

Mimesis is the process by which art reflects and reinterprets the world around it

In Mimesis, a solo exhibition by artist Moran Kliger, at the South African Jewish Museum, you will engage with large scale, labour-intensive pencil on paper figurative drawings.  

Kliger’s work focuses primarily on figurative, narrative drawings. Her works engage with the tension between the domesticated element and the wild and dark element within the human psyche. Using motifs associated with raw nature and fantastical elements, she tries to explore the relationship between these two contradictory components in the definition of the human.

​Large drawings in round frames akin to windows peeking into the human unconscious feature manifestations of fear and admiration for nature.

Kliger’s primates explore the meeting point between human and ape. The works demonstrate how the border between man and beast blurs and dissolves, and the image itself becomes a new hybrid creature. ​The drawings are installed in deep frames, which echo zoo cages or display cabinets.

An exhibition that invites you into a very different space!
