Warm Leatherette

A five day collaboration between Myself, Yuri Suzuki, Bogosi Sekhukuni and Neo Mahlasela. Yuri and I created instruments from technology readily found in the streets of downtown Johannesburg.

These instruments where used by Bogosi Sekhukuni and Neo Mahlasela to create a soundtrack and video piece entitled ‘Warm Leatherette’ which accompanied the instruments in the final installation of the same name.

The finished works were exhibited in the Kalashnikovv gallery over the A MAZE festival weekend and the British Council’s Blurring the Lines Exhibition in London.

The project was commisioned by onedotzero and is part of SA-UK Seasons 2014 & 2015 which is partnership between the Department of Arts & Culture, South Africa and the British Council.
