JOURNALIST WITHOUT WORDS (article first published : 2007-04-27)

Journalist Without Words is a new book featuring several chapters about Durban, the BAT Centre and other South African regions and organisations. It was recently introduced by artist/author Jacquelyn Thunfors at the opening of her exhibition at the Durban University of Technology’s Gallery.

The exhibition, titled Birth Mother of Us All – South Africa is running until May 17. The collection of 45 paintings and drawings is a travelling series dedicated to celebrating contemporary South African life and features works about mitochondrial DNA, politics, evolution, sangomas, gold miners, San drawing sites, Modjadj the rain queen – all of which have been produced in South Africa over the years.

During April, Jacquelyn Thunfors travelled between three groups of gifted Durban young artists – from the BAT Centre, the African Art Centre and DUT – offering them new techniques and global perspectives on their skills and opportunities.

An international artist for 20 years, she has exhibited all over the world and has just received the registered trademark for her innovative work – Journalart – and the book details two decades of establishing this concept worldwide.

Its meaning – transmission of ideas without words – exemplifies what this South African collection exudes – bringing people together to celebrate what everyone shares in common, beyond language.
