Fine artist Colijn Strydom relates the legendary play Oedipus the King to his own exploration of self-identity in his latest solo exhibition. Titled Oedipus, the exhibition, presented by House Union Block (HUB) at the Sisonke Gallery at the Cape Heritage Hotel, will run from 2 February to 2 April 2023.
The Pretoria-born, Cape Town-based artist, performer and lecturer continues his career-long engagement with gender, whiteness and self-consciousness with a collection of drawings that respond to the Sisonke Gallery space. With the play as a departure point, Strydom unravels these themes in his delicate yet vibrant pieces.
Dates: 2 February – 2 April 2023
Times: Monday-Saturday 09h00-22h00
Venue: Sisonke Gallery at the Cape Heritage Hotel
