JOBURG Art Fair, Johannesburg 2018

We are delighted to announce our participation at FNB Joburg Art Fair from 6 - 9 September.
To celebrate our 10th anniversary in Johannesburg we will show a selection of artists at three stands.

At the SOLO section (stand S04) ARTCO will present UNLEASHED - an artistic collaboration by Roger Ballen & Hans Lemmen for the first time in South Africa.


"Unleashed": Unsettling, even brutal, this is Roger Ballen, revisiting the depths of the human psyche in a project together with Hans Lemmen; a project remarkable in every respect. 

Living thousands of miles apart, the two artists have worked on each other's works over a period of months. Photos and drawings have been exchanged and re-exchanged, dissected, made into collages, in part re-photographed and drawn over; an intense dialogue involving camera, scissors, charcoal and pen. The result is spectacular, transcending the boundaries across these several genres.


At the CONTEMPORARY section (stand C07) we will show works by
Marion Boehm, Claude Chandler, Saidou Dicko, Justin Dingwall and Evans Mbugua.


You will also find us at the EDITIONS section (stand P05) with early wood cuts by EL Loko.


With all good wishes,

Jutta & Joachim Melchers
