Notes

Rodan Kane-Hart principally works as a sculptor. Using photography and drawing, he records visual patterns in the urban fabric of Johannesburg and Cape Town, which he later translates in his studio into small-scale models and/or larger sculptural forms for exhibition. Hart’s method as a sculptor is essentially iterative: new works will often recycle ideas and forms from earlier works, creating a tight loop of influence. This work originates from his final undergraduate year at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2011 and is a companion to his steelframed outdoor installation, Pavilion Dedicated to Context (2011). At the time Hart was interested in urban spatial perception. He conceived this lot, a set of freestanding sculptures based on sections and distortions of the Cartesian city grid, as a means to ‘activate and demarcate space’. The desired outcome is that the viewer will become ‘more aware of themselves in relation to the space around them’.1
