Andrew Kayser: At Home, After Dark
From July 20 to August 20, 2017, Kalashnikovv Gallery will present At Home, After Dark, a solo exhibition by South African artist Andrew Kayser. His work explores the basis of meaning and how we prescribe its function through the language of art in our current society. In a world where we confine meaning – through myths, history, fiction and religion Kayser explores a sense of stability and order.
This most recent body of work invites us into a space that emphasises the fleeting, intangible nature of meaning. Through the use of peculiar juxtapositions, veiled archetypes, subjective stereotypes and expansive metaphors, the viewer is solicited to construct their own narrative. At Home, After Dark offers a look into Andrew Kayser’s dark and complex take on the world, where moments are ambiguous, and nothing is absolute.
