Naomi van Niekerk
Naomi van Niekerk is a hybrid-media artist based in South Africa and works in film, theatre, installation and printmaking. Her training and work in puppetry inspires her to breathe life into inanimate materials albeit objects or liquid powder that is animated frame by frame using a camera. As a stop-motion animator, she creates short films of haunting poignancy and power based on sensitive interpretations of stark, South African narrative poems that speak to her. For the exhibition she presents multiple samples of her printmaking works on paper and excerpts of stop-motion animations.
