PH Gallery Cape Town Launch

 

Thank you to all those who attended the Cape Town launch of the book along with the opening of the ‘Into the flames’ exhibition at PH Gallery.

The following images are from the day the images were hung and the rest are from the opening evening, thanks to Nicky Newman, it really was a wonderful evening full of stories and memories. With so much interest the exhibition was extended a further week till the 4th October.

Burn – Into the flames of burning art is now available for purchase with details for delivery/collection on the sioca publishing website www.siocapublishing.com

Three editions have been designed and printed

A standard softcover.

A Collectors hardback edition in slipcase with 3 limited C-Type photographic prints, signed by a selection of 6 Afrikaburn founders/Afrikaburn directors/Afrikaburn artists.

A luxuroius Deluxe linen hand bound hardback edition in slipcase with 5 C-Type photographic prints, signed by 14 Afrikaburn founders/Afrikaburn directors/Afrikaburn artists along with a cast bronze sculpture by Egon Tania that will encompass the book.

The list of signatures is representative of close friends and in no way is a complete selection of founders/directors and artists.

This is a personal journey and far from an official history, although many artworks, burns, friends and strangers appear within 264 pages containing over 600 images.

Please note in line with the principle of decommodification the majority of any profit will go to a new AfrikaBurn art fund to help in the creation of future artworks.

Official launch dates coinciding with an exhibition of fine art images will be announced shortly.

Many thanks to all who helped and appear in the pages of this my first book.
