Art curator Botho Project Space has announced its latest offering, A Place Called Home, showcasing the works of award-winning contemporary visual artist Trevor Stuurman. The much-anticipated first solo exhibition by Trevor Stuurman will officially open on the 20th of May (Opening on the 19th of May) and will run until the 19th of June 2022 in Johannesburg.
A Place Called Home is where Trevor Stuurman’s story and journey come alive. He places himself within the exhibition by personifying various themes and installations, all created to live throughout the home that is created by Botho Project Space, with furniture and homeware from Weylandts. Home is the foundation of Stuurman’s life, constantly choosing to create his understanding of the world he sees through his own familiarity.
A Place Called Home is a celebration that aims to continue a fractured yet existing conversation: to make the table longer and wider, making space for more people to come together and ultimately to build a culture of community, reminding us that home is a place of belonging.
Narrated through the lens of Trevor Stuurman, the exhibition is an expression of ‘home’, a concept very close to his heart. Evoking the nostalgic feeling of a loved one waking you up at the first light of dawn, dipping into a warm bath, scrubbing the weekend away and stepping out in your Sunday best.
Set in a home in Parktown West, the idea behind the exhibition is to re-create a space where people relive their own Sundays at home, the special memories and moments that make these days sacred in any South African home.
Stuurman has collaborated with leading furniture and homeware retailer Weylandts to infuse the exhibition with authentic design, using many of the same pieces the artist has in his own home.
With a true reflection of home and all it has to offer, bespoke experiences themed SUNDAY BEST will be produced to run alongside the month-long exhibition. Combining art, music and food, the experiences will take place every Sunday and will include a series of curated dining experiences by a selection of top South African chefs, paired with local musicians who will serenade guests. Attendees get to dress in their SUNDAY BEST, gather around the table with their loved ones and enjoy amazing conversation, food and music.
