CAPSULE PROJECTS EXHIBITION

Rather than offer a disguise for their wearers, these masks reveal something, however cryptic, about the makers.

Known for the facilitation and presentation of conceptual fashion/art/music/eco collaborations such as ‘Rock Me Again’, ‘Beautiful Noise’ and ‘Tomorrow Society’, Capsule Project‘s latest endeavour, ART HOUSE, is a collection of masks, visors, mouth-, head-, and eye-pieces from the elaborate to the illusory.

Fifteen independently-minded artists from diverse disciplines were each invited to create a mask that reflected an aspect of their inner spirit. In doing so they removed the primary function of a mask, to conceal, and replaced it with self-expression.

When we step out the door and engage with the real world, our ‘true face’ often becomes a mask in itself, revealing and hiding aspects of our personality depending on who our ‘spectators’ are. It is within this context that ART HOUSE approaches the mask as a cultural, social and art object.

The artists were photographed wearing their masks in individual portraits shot by Kent Andreasen.The project was presented as a photographic exhibition with live electronic music performance in conjunction with Red Bull Studios Cape Town and Eristoff Vodka during the first spring edition of First Thursdays on 4 September.

The contributing artists were Brett Charles Seiler, Chloe Hugo-Hamman, Crystal Birch, Danielle Clough, Henry Maritz, Katherine-Mary Pichulik, Kim Gush, Lara Klawikowski, Laura Windvogel, Leanie van der Vyver, Lucie de Moyencourt, Nicola Vlok, Rosie Mudge, Stiaan Louw and Zakirah Rabaney.
