Tori Stowe

It seems we made a lot of mistakes. Colonialism, eating all the dodos, Justin Beiber, tupperware parties, the 80s in particular and the whole fossil fuel thing…We are living at a time on the world planet (in South Africa particularly), where everything we’re dealing with (plagues, wild fires, chaos and anarchism etc) seems to have been created by historical, hysterical and current mistakes of our own making. Us humans, with our curious urge to explore, discover and then capture and consume everything we see. This exhibition is a digestion of this moment in time. A reverse exploration: a rewriting of everything we have written and rewritten and then painting over it once more. To put it all back in the ship and sail forth.
