Clive van den Berg presents solo project at the Joburg Art Fair

For this year’s FNB Joburg Art Fair Goodman Gallery presents a solo project by Clive van den Berg with work forming part of his ongoing series Men Loving, which investigates what is considered legitimate for the world to mourn and memorialise. The recent appalling killings in Orlando are not the first to target LGBT people, either by ISIS or by other fanatics who wish to punish acts of loving. The eight-meter high hand carved sculpture references classical ruins in Palmyra that were destroyed by ISIS and widely lamented in the mainstream media. These relics are re-imagined by the artist so that ancient relief carvings are replaced with memorials to the brutal murders of people who love in defiance of prejudice.
