from the editor

otice anything different? After 22 years we’re taking a bold new direction. What better way to signal that than with a striking new logo – and what better month to shake things up than January, the month when we all recharge, regroup and reflect. ‘Direction’ has become a bit of a buzz word for me. The way I see it, it’s less about trends and more about, well, directions. In my mind, the former conjures up notions of the ephemeral, subjective, even whimsical, while the latter signals a commitment to an ideology, a belief in the meaning behind one’s work – sometimes, as in the case of photographer Roger Ballen, that’s a direction 30 years in the making. This issue is dedicated to the pursuit of discovering these design directions, and we turned…

‘my mother told me to choose art because with art, i could do everything ’

‘Coming from a place like the African continent, we’re very familiar with the idea of borders,’ says Otobong Nkanga. ‘We understand it very well because of visas, passports, language barriers, and the difficult relationships between countries like Nigeria and Cameroon. We all grew up thinking of the other not through connections but division.’ For the last 20 years, Otobong has explored the politics of land and its relationship to the body while unpacking different histories of land ownership and migration. In her work, she searches for similarities and connections between different people that transcend geographic and cultural divisions. The result has been a body of work that is not only deeply personal to the artist, but profoundly relevant to the viewer. This interpersonal and charged experience is the reason Otobong…

his dark materials

I have been taking photographs for over 50 years and have been living in Johannesburg for 38 years. During this time, I have developed an aesthetic that is commonly referred to as Ballenesque. From 1982 to 1994, I worked exclusively in the South African countryside, and from the mid-nineties, I have taken nearly all my photographs in and around Johannesburg. It is clear to me that I inhabit an anomalous position, as an outsider and insider. I am an insider in the sense that I am well educated, travelled and aware of the nuances of the photographic and art world. In my daily routine, I regularly travel to what I refer to as the ‘Outland’ – a place that might seem strange, enigmatic, chaotic and even dreamlike. I have never considered myself…

second act

‘It’s about craft and luxury, and what better design studio to work with than Tonic Design on a tight brief,’ says Tiaan Nagel, who’s recently opened Hyde Park flagship marks the lauded designer’s industry return. ‘I wanted to create an intimate space, where your favourite art, sofa and family heirlooms are interspersed with contemporary design. All things are handmade, sophisticated, but ultimately reflect the wearer.’ Oversized curtains of raw Belgian linen drape over wide oak floorboards, and a perfectly proportioned velvet couch is set against a palette of dark-chocolate brown. Tiaan worked with antique dealer Riaan Bolt to procure the finest Cape Stinkwood pieces for the store, as he wanted that ‘gravitas’ of history, which is then offset by reflective, coloured mirrors, while a Michael Macharry paper wall hanging creates texture.
