The Mail&Guardian gave me a good anticipatory write-up; under the headline 'Real art', the first paragraph reads:
"In his previous new-media works, found objects and sculptures, South African artist, designer and technologist Ralph Borland has displayed an uncanny knack for a witty, on-the-ground, socio-political practice that works to make visible the seemingly invisible, the overlooked and undervalued: opening up dialogue, promoting creative thought and running against the mainstream in offbeat, poly-vocal and often provocative ways. His latest exhibition at blank projects promises to follow in a similar vein."
(Miles Keylock, p.8 'Friday' section, Mail&Guardian, 4 August 2006)
Die Burger published
a half-page interview (in Afrikaans) about the show. View the article 'Krake
in die beloofde land' by Laetitia Pople as a 500k .jpg. Published 16 August 2006.
You may also read the full text of our interview in English - these are Laetitia's questions and my responses (via email), from which the article is constructed.
Robert Sloon over at art-tabloid ArtHeat gave me a tip of the hat... read it here.
