Nelmarie du Preez @ Arebyte Gallery, Oct 1 – Nov 7

, 29 September 2015

South African artist Nelmarie du Preez opens her first solo show, Autonomous Times, running at Arebyte Gallery from October 1 to November 7.

Inspired by DIY cultures and what is described as “the changing landscape of labour”, du Preez’s installation imagines a future where humans may need to domesticate and control their now fully autonomous artificial creations.

Her new video work and installation is comprised of “trust or ‘taming’ exercises performed on a dangerous assembly line between herself and her wild robots”, calling into question not only our trust in the technology that increasingly rules us, but in “ourselves and each other” as well.

See the exhibition page for details. **
