Turbine Art Fair 2023

July 27, 2023 - July 30, 2023

ESCAP3 Gallery is delighted to announce our participation in the forthcoming Turbine Art Fair (TAF) 2023 with the presentation of 'Medium', a Duo Exhibition featuring new Series by Octavia Roodt: 'Prayers to swallow' & Neo Theku: 'Asylusmism'. 

Join us in the Gallery Main Division of TAF which celebrates its 11th Edition taking place at the Forum Company’s upcoming Hyde Park Venue in Johannesburg, South Africa, 27 - 30 July 2023.

'Medium' presents the combination of two Series’ in which both Artists attempt to soothe, question and confront trauma. With the use of their own physical body in their work, they themselves become conduits or intermediaries between the corporeal and the unseen. 'Medium' not only alludes to an in between or middle, but also references the materials used in the creation of artworks.

Neo Theku will activate the exhibition space with a daily Performance, in which he will further blurr the boundary between his two dimensional portraiture by inviting the audience to be included in his creation process, and the rituals of his practice. Octavia Roodt’s autobiographical 'body' of work presents us with an Installation which further perpetuates the interconnectedness between the Artist and their sacred work.
