DESMOND ZEEDERBERG (article first published : 2005-03-24)

An exhibition titled The Life and Times of Susan Strange, is an exhibition of original artwork by Desmond Zeederberg curated by Tamlyn Martin running at The Cupboard Gallery @ Home, Corner Innes and Windermere Roads.

Desmond Zeederberg graduated from Parktown Art College and has been working as a full-time fine artist for the past three years. He has participated in several group exhibitions in Durban and Johannesburg, including Crimes of Passion and the Instill Exhibitions. The life and times of Susan Strange is his first solo exhibition.

“My concept for this exhibition has been to assume the identity of a fictional character and portray my reality through her eyes,” says Desmond. “This has given the work a sense of freedom from my own preconceived ideas. My character and that of Susan’s share many similarities, although we can never fundamentally understand one another completely. The work has also given me a greater empathy for those who struggle to assimilate to a world not of their making and society’s unwillingness to make allowances for those who are different.”

The exhibition runs until April 15. More information from Tamlyn Martin on 031 201 1743.
