“When Dust Settles” is Igshaan Adams’ National Gallery exhibition in celebration of his Standard Bank Young Artist 2018 award.

For this exhibition, Adams presents an eclectic and multi-sensory, large-scale installation, bringing together aspects of sculpture, textiles, found objects, furniture and performance to create an immersive environment.

The title “When Dust Settles” refers to both the retrospective nature of the exhibition as well as the process of gaining perspective over time.  The installation revisits the concepts in Adams’ earlier works, of hybrid identity and liminality, particularly in relation to race, religion and sexuality, as well as his artistic processes and materials.  It also encompasses Adams’ more recent artistic exploration of personal histories and lived experiences as inscribed onto the materials of our daily lives.  The used vinyl flooring in the installation, with their dirt, wear, and marks, can be interpreted as a manifestation of our interior lives. Sourced from houses in low-income areas including Bonteheuwel where Adams was born and raised, these floorings speak of Adams’ own childhood as well as the political history of Cape Town.  <Find out more from Adams’ gallery blank projects>

Please join the artist and Olga Speakes in conversation and a walkabout of the exhibition.
