Featuring performances, screenings and stories told by Abri de Swardt, Anneke Kampman, Quentin Lannes, Beth Kettel, Shona Macnaughton and Josh Wilson. ‘Blend the Acclaim of your Chant’ is a part of Jerwood Staging Series, a wider effort to contextualise and present several event-based exhibitions by emerging artists.
Ranging from a video piece that explores the disembodied characters in the world of virtual boxing by Lannes, (‘The Next Round’ (2016)), to a cumulative performance of “the perfect school girl” by Macnaughton and De Swardt’s new film, ‘Ridder Thirst’ —incorporating a dense narrative lapsing between English and Afrikaans— the event seems to present itself things that layer.
