REMEMBER (article first published : 2008-07-30)

Remember is the title of an exhibition by Jacki Bruniquel coming to artSPACEdurban’s Middle Gallery shortly.

"Appalled by the rigorous plans of developers around my hometown Umdloti beach and a seemingly inevitable future of less green space, I began to document its' cane fields and natural spaces with my camera,” explains Jacki. “The areas around Umdloti are rich with bird, animal and plant life. A migratory barnyard swallow population of over 1.5 million roost in the marshes of Mount Moreland. This is where the government is building its new airport.

“It seems obvious to me that the over development of the Natal North Coast will negatively impact the environment and ultimately society at large. Yet developers seem to be unleashed and unstoppable with little regard to notions of sustainable development. By walking through the green spaces with my camera, I was in a sense remembering a history, a landscape that will no longer be there in the future. I used these photographs as a basis for rich mixed media works using a combination of painting, collage and photography."

Remember runs at artSPACEdurban from August 4 to 23. The gallery is situated in Millar Road next to the Waste Centre in Umgeni Road. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit www.artspacedurban.co.za
