(“Shelley Point 2” by Robert Balfour)

An exhibition by Robert Balfour has recently opened at artSPACE durban.

This collection profiles two themes within the overall title of The Exploded View (drawing from the title of Vladislavic’s, 2004 novel). It concerns the extent to which perspectives on the view can be regarded as natural or normal (thus assumptions as regards what is ‘real’, ‘normal’ or to be expected, are contested).

Robert Balfour’s focus in this exhibition extends the focus of his 2007 exhibition at artSPACE durban.

The Exploded View runs until October 31 at 14h00. artSPACE durban is situated at 3 Millar Road (off Umgeni Road) close to the Waste Centre. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit or
