DINEO BOPAPE: LOVESTRUNG (article first published : 2008-05-12)

Lovestrung is an installation of new works on paper by Dineo Bopape which is due to open at the KZNSA Gallery on May 13.

Produced in 2008 during her residency at the Thami Mnyele Foundation, Amsterdam, the artist writes that the work is the result of “post break up stress – drawings, personal anecdotes, notes, letters, questions and statements. They are angry, dreamy, playful, bitchy, quiet and loud. About desire, lust, anger, intimacy and fantasy.

The texts in the drawings originate mainly from the song love strung by teen heartthrob Justin Timberlake (‘those special lights seem to come from everywhere ... those special lights seem to cause a glare ...’)”

“But some others originate from other songs and from my own personal lines,” Dineo Bopape continues. “The stories in the drawings seemingly circulate within each other, each drawing referring to another, either in line, colour or text. The drawings are of lights, bubbles, bodies, transgender animals, and lights strung out across thin lines.”

Lovestrung opens at 17h30 on May 13 and runs until June 8. The KZNSA is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, Durban. More information on 031 277 1703, email: curator@kznsagallery.co.za or visit www.kznsagallery.co.za
