THE STAGING OF THE ARTIST (article first published : 2002-07-28)

South African film-maker Aryan Kaganof will be presenting his award-winning production: Western 433 as part of his eclectic, multi-media exhibition The Staging of the Artist as the Work Itself, to be held at the NSA Gallery in August. It will have its South African debut at Durban's NSA gallery at 20h00 on August 5 as part his large-scale exhibition of Kaganof's recent digital paintings. The exhibition, which will run for three weeks, will feature collaborations with Durban-based artists such as Syd Kitchen and Helge Janssen, Cape Town artists Nicola Deane and the performance groups Virgins and Die Kaksusters.

Kaganof won the prestigious First Prize for Best Video made in Africa for 2001/2 at the 12th Festival of African Cinema, Milan for PPC Young Concrete Sculptor Awards, a South African/Dutch co-production scripted and directed by Kaganof. The announcement was made at a ceremony held this month (April 2002) in Milan, Italy.

Western 4.33 is only the second ever South African production to win a prize at the festival. The first was Zola Maseko's Hottentot Revue in 1999. The exhibition runs until August 18.
