A Day at Sea

12 June 2017

A Day at Sea, an exhibition by Martina Gruber and Gillian Rosselli, will be displayed at the UCT Irma Stern Museum from 10 June to 1 July.

Through their work, Rosselli (artist) and Gruber (photographer), explore the human tragedy on the borders of some of Europe’s most beautiful seasides, challenging the onlooker to look beyond the superficial beauty of the sea to see the impact of immigration policies governing the Mediterranean.

Paintings and mixed media, photographs, and collages of assembled found objects form a framework for these journeys. A sunset view of an ancient pier in Trieste might initially conjure up voyages of discovery only to reveal the harshness of exploitation, and the plight of refugees today.

A walkabout will be held at the gallery at 11:00 on Saturday, 24 June.

The UCT Irma Stern Museum is open Tuesday to Friday from 10:00 to 17:00, and Saturdays from 10:00 to 14:00.
