Goodman Gallery Cape Town is delighted to present ‘A Slow Succession with Many Interruptions’, a group exhibition that contemplates artists’ responses to the changing landscape of the twenty-first century.

The exhibition’s title draws inspiration from George Kubler’s influential 1962 work, ‘The Shape of Time’, which presents a framework for understanding cultural artefacts as interconnected concepts evolving over centuries, punctuated by deviations and pauses. The artworks in the exhibition embody this concept of time and concept of fragmentation, reflecting the era in which they were created while simultaneously connecting to past and future influences integral to their making.

An articulation of this concept begins with Laura Lima, whose practice intimately engages with materiality, often inviting organic matter, degradation and the passage of time as agents in the formation and long-term existence of her works. Her latest series of large-scale textile pieces explore Brazilian mythology, nature and the transformation of materials over time. The work invites temporal fluidity, allowing the textiles final form to exist in the future as time enables a shift in colour and shape, while the mythological past persists in thematic weight.
