Reflection: (Strips)
by Rodan Kane Hart

A site-specific instalation
3-21 July 2012

Rodan Kane Hart will temporarily activate the exterior of Blank Projects from the 3rd to the 21st of July 2012. A recurring theme in Hart’s work is spatial transformation and perception. His previous projects have often attempted to identify, expose and subsequently ‘unpack’ noteworthy ideological constructs underpinning numerous urban forms within many Contemporary South African Cities. By using Blank Project’s closed roller shutter door as a location for his project Reflection: (Strips), Hart will once again employ a favored strategy of site specific intervention, this time consisting of an installation comprised of over 200 (1m long by 50mm high) strips of recycled and re-used mirror, which he will install into the groves of two roller shutter doors spanning a total distance of 8 meters measuring 3 meters in height. He states; “This ephemeral work seeks to stimulate a heightened emotional response through a distorted reflected experience of the urban life of Woodstock Main Road. It is my hope that this intervention will draw one’s attention to the actions that are responsible for manufacturing space & place”. Presenting a fragmented representation of the surrounding context is a gesture that activates an otherwise non-traditional exhibition space in unexpected ways: the city is no longer just a subject for representation, but now becomes a strategic medium for reflection.

Rodan Kane Hart (b. 1988). Completed two years of Fine Art at Wits University in Johannesburg during the years of 2008/2009, transferring to complete his undergraduate studies at the Michaelis School of Fine Art (Uct) in Cape Town during 2010/2011. Hart has taken part in numerous group exhibitions throughout his university and professional career since 2004, including; Outside The Lines: An Exploration in Abstract Materiality, at WHATIFTHEWORLD Gallery, 2010 FIFA© world cup exhibition Halakasha curated by Fiona Rankin Smith at the Standard Bank Art Gallery in Johannesburg, & Time’s Arrow curated by Anthea Buys at the Johannesburg Art Gallery. Hart has further been instrumental in initiating independent art exhibitions and events, both in Cape Town & Johannesburg. This October will see Hart’s first gallery Solo Exhibition, comprised of an entirely new body of work at Commune 1 in Cape Town. Rodan currently lives and works in Cape Town & Johannesburg.
