Stevenson Gallery inaugurates their relocation to Parktown North with a solo exhibition by Portia Zvavahera.
Talitha Cumi (an Aramaic phrase meaning ‘Little girl, arise’), makes reference to a Biblical story in which Jesus resurrects a child from the dead; accordingly, Zvavahera’s new group of paintings is concerned with a longing for spiritual transcendence, freedom from the ongoing cycle of human suffering. As with previous bodies of work, Zvavahera cites a dream as her starting point – in this instance, one of struggle and a desire to be ‘lifted up’.
Venue: Stevenson Gallery, 46 7th Avenue, Parktown North
Time: Mon to Friday 9am to 5pm | Sat 10am to 1pm
