South African Artists

 

Brett Murray

MurrayThese works are part of an ongoing reflection on the ‘Truth and Reconciliation’ process unfolding in South Africa, a process whereby perpetrators of the crimes of Apartheid reveal their pasts. My wall sculptures attempt to expose the ambiguity of “Truth.” By revealing private stories and hidden truths, by reflecting on the ambivalence between memory and by understanding where the fixed notion of truth lies, by questioning and revealing these shifting memories, histories and truths in all of us who have lived through and are living in an emerging country.
