URBAN WOMEN TWO ZERO ZERO FIVE (article first published : 2005-08-7)

Opening at the African Art Centre on August 10 is an exhibition titled urban women two zero five. It comprises an installation of artworks by Zama Dunywa, Yvette Dunn, Dineo Popape, Nontobeko Ntombela, Simmi Dullay which focuses on insights into the lives of five young women surviving in today's post-colonial South Africa.

This show is a peep into the minds of young women today, where there are so many question marks about the roles that women play either willingly or unwillingly.

Zama Dunywa: "I am interested in the roles that women play regarding religion and marriage, either conforming or not, the issues of pressures from mother to daughter, sister, lover, to fill and fulfill these roles..."

Yvette Dunn: "I am trying to find a place for myself to be comfortable in my everyday life. I have been researching my family history to create an identity and to find out how I feel today..."

Simmi Dullay: "My work deals with nostalgia, exile, dislocation, unrequited love, between destination and destiny, the travels which mark and shape our bodies and minds, exposing the hybridity of trans-cultural layers

Dineo Bopape: "I focus on sexuality, mutedness, castration. Patters and the space in between them, create a growth process..."

Nontobeko Ntombela: I am fascinated by crossword puzzles and how the connections between things happen and how ones obsessions change with seeing new connections....."

The exhibition will be opened on August 10 at 17h30 by Welile K Tembe, performing artist and cultural research consultant.
