somewhere between heaven and hell

(Above: an image from the installation)

An exhibition titled somewhere between heaven and hell by David Gush is running in the Main Gallery at the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg.

This installation forms part of a practice-led MA project.

For many years, David Gush has primarily used unglazed terracotta clay in the form of earth and/or bricks as an art medium. Bricks as building materials have from time immemorial constituted the fundamental elements of construction.

This exploration by Gush interrogates the significance of the effect of these building materials when used as an art-making medium, and specifically the implications where the artwork takes the form of an installation in a formal Gallery space.

The exhibition runs until November 20, 2022, at 14h00.

The Tatham Art Gallery is situated opposite the Town Hall in Chief Albert Luthuli Street, Pietermaritzburg. It is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 10h00 to 17h00. Café Tatham is open on Saturdays. Safe parking with a car guard available. More information on 033 392 2801 or visit
