Cemetery, 2014. Exhibition Invitation .

'Cemetery'

Raimi Gbadamosi at Johannesburg Art Gallery

'Cemetery' is a collection of thinkers, makers, and individuals of significance that have had a profound impact on collective thought. Starting from his own mental archive, it is an investigation into how mutual thought processes are formed, how canons are created, how they form themselves into communal inspiration, and how rehearsals of canons have the tendency to reinforce the power of particular thought. Canons are not necessarily going to be the same for all people: geography, social position, education, class relationships, and the list can go on, have an impact on the way that individuals structure their imaginations, and deal with their lives.

'Cemetery' is made up of two hundred and fourteen stainless steel panels listed with the last name of salient individuals, and dates of their birth and death where known. These will be installed in the gallery, along with nine 'Ceremonial Flags of The Republic', and three tombstones that relate to Raimi as an individual addressing questions of artistic im/mortality.

07 December - 29 March
