For part-two of the Second DVD in the TAXI Art Films series, director Revel Fox gathered extraordinary footage of some of the artists included in Spier Contemporary 2007. This Curated exhibition, organized by the Africa Centre, was held in a temporary structure built out of shipping containers at the Spier Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa. The cutting-edge exhibition represented a wide range of South African artists working in a variety of media.
Featured on this DVD:
Brett Bailey, whose performance piece shocked viewers with its pointed commentary on immigrants in South Africa
Ruth Levin, with a performance that interrogates stereotypes of feminine identity
Leila Anderson, who performs a work conceptualised by Peter van Heerden – a work the artist has been described as a linear journey through the mud of history
Mwenya Kabwe, Chuma Sopotela and Kemang Walehulere, whose collaborative performance is inspired by their interpretations of memory, loss and transition
