A Month in Siena

Matar was nineteen years old when his father was kidnapped. In the year following he found himself turning to art, particularly the great paintings of the Sienese School.

They became a refuge and a way to think about the world outside the urgencies of the present. A quarter of a century later, having found no trace of his father, Matar finally visits the birthplace of those paintings. A Month in Siena is the encounter between the writer and the city.

Fallen Idols: Twelve Statues That Made History

Statues are one of the most visible – and controversial – forms of historical storytelling. The stories we tell about history are vital to how we, as societies, understand our past and create our future. So whose stories do we tell? Who or what defines us? What if we don’t all agree? How is history made, and why? Fallen Idols looks at twelve statues in modern history. It looks at why they were put up; the stories they were supposed to tell; why those stories were challenged; and how they came down. History is not erased when statues are pulled down. If anything, it is made.

Heidi Fourie – Encroacher

Encroacher (2020) Heidi Fourie, Two-plate spitbite aquatint etching and drypoint, 35.8 x 43.4 cm, edition of 6, R 4 750 VAT incl. unframed

The image in Encroacher depicts a plant that is found commonly in the grasslands of the Highveld. Fourie is fascinated by this particular bush, which she describes as “cathedral –like,” with tendrils that jut out. However, if left unchecked, this bush can quickly invade an area especially if it is overgrazed. This fact, as well as its tendency to rob other plants of water and nutrients, makes it unpopular among farmers and a threat to valuable grasslands. Fourie feels that this is bitter-sweet – something that is so beautiful also has its dark side.
There are drypoint hands in this image that appear to be reaching up and out; they are incredibly subtle, but can’t be unseen once seen.
