Will (1997-), South Africa 2018

Cape Town, Johannesburg

7 July – 24 August 2018

Offering commentary on objecthood and value to the 2018 exhibition Both, and was Siopis’ ongoing Will installation. Begun in 1997, this roving collection of objects, bequeathed to individuals around the world, only becomes activated on the artist’s death. Artefacts are experienced both as art and heirloom, representing different values for those who possessed the objects before the artist acquired them, and those who receive them in the future.
