Delicate Life Pursuer

15 September – 15 October 2007

Stellenbosch Modern and Contemporary is proud to present Delicate Life Pursuer, an exhibition of mixed media works by Trasi Henen.

Trasi Henen completed her Bachelors of Art, Fine Art degree at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2003. She has had two solo exhibitions in Johannesburg, Suburbia Fantastical (2003), and Passer By (2005). She curated an outdoor video festival, Art in the Dark, in 2004.

Henen’s previous exhibitions explored themes of fractured and alienated suburban spaces, influenced by the sinister landscape of a South African City. Preoccupied with imbued landscapes the spaces she creates in her works are anxious but also elusive and compelling. These themes are explored further in her current body of work.

Trasi Henen moved from Johannesburg to Cape Town at the beginning of 2007. Delicate Life Pursuer is Henen’s first solo exhibition in the Western Cape.
