She That Spreads The Winds

13 Apr 2023 - 20 May 2023

From 12 April to 20 May: "She That Spreads The Winds", a duo exhibition by two contemporary artists. Dr Gindi's sculptures translate the heaviness of emotions and the lightness of feelings into bronze, while Sheila Nakitende's hanging tapestries in bark cloth offer a meditation through the transformation of fibres.

Vernissage Thursday, 13 April from 6 - 8 pm

in the presence of the artists Dr Gindi and Sheila Nakitende

The exhibition She That Spreads The Winds is named for one of Dr Gindi’s sculptures, a small bronze depicting a twisting figure seemingly caught in a vortex of swirling winds – unless she is controlling them. In Dr Gindi’s work, the invisible forces of human feeling and meditation are forged through fire into abstracted human forms. Surrounding the bronze silhouettes, Sheila Nakitende’s works tremble in whispering, featherlight tapestries. The meditative process of harvesting the bark and reshaping it into fleece, weaving emotion and air into her pieces as she goes, echoes Dr Gindi’s breaking down of the human psyche, casting it through wax and rebuilding it as filigree, but sturdy bronze. The iterative process of examining and dismantling emotion and materials in order to capture their form, is what brings these two artists together in an incarnation of human resilience, and transcendence. 

Who has seen the Wind

Who has seen the wind?

Neither I nor you:

But when the leaves hang trembling,

The wind is passing through.

Who has seen the wind?

Neither you nor I:

But when the trees bow down their heads,

The wind is passing by.

Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)
