ARTIST BECOMES ARTWORK (article first published : 2002-06-27)

The NSA Gallery, Durban, proudly presents: Kaganof, Janssen, Henegan & Deane Virgins: the staging of the artist as the work itself from July 31 to August 17, 2002.

Setting up camp in the NSA Gallery for a three-week period, artist/filmmaker Aryan Kaganof will be presenting a multimedia collaborative, interactive exhibition, consisting of film screenings, discussions, performances and ever changing digital artworks. Kaganof will live (and be on display) in the NSA for the whole duration of the show with a digital editing suite, allowing the artist to process ‘input’ by visitors to the gallery complex overnight. The results will be presented as printouts, screenings and projections, resulting in a constantly evolving exhibition.

Kaganof invited Durban based artist/DJ Helge Janssen, artist/filmmaker Catherine Henegan (currently based in Amsterdam) and performance artist Nicola Deane to join the fray. The results of the collaborations and individual works will be presented as part of the exhibition, and included in a programme of three evenings of presentations, music and performance.

Films from Kaganof’s oeuvre will be screened continuously in the gallery for the duration of the exhibition, allowing visitors a unique opportunity to witness the work of this renowned filmmaker, including the South African premiere of “WESTERN 4.33” (2002), winner of the first prize,12th African Film Festival, Milan.

During the opening on July 30, there will be a performance by Helge Janssen and a screening of Nicola’s First Orgasm, The Seven Last Words Of Jesus Christ and Western 4.33. There is a special event on August 10 featuring a poetry reading by Leo Janssen, a sound performance by Nicola Deane and the world premiere performance of The Gospel According To Kaganof featuring Matthew Oats

The closing party on August 17 includes the world premiere screening of Casbah And Back, a fashion show & performance by Helge Janssen and performance by Virgins.
