VIRGINS (article first published : 2002-07-21)

Having set up camp in the NSA Gallery for a three-week period, artist/filmmaker Aryan Kaganof presents a multimedia collaborative, interactive exhibition, consisting of film screenings, discussions, performances and ever-changing digital artworks. Kaganof is living (and being 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 from 10h0 to 17h00, 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.

The exhibition opening on July 30 will feature a performance by Helge Janssen as well as a screening of Nicola's First Orgasm, The Seven Last Words Of Jesus Christ and Western 4.33.
