SMITH presents Nothing Bad, a solo exhibition by Michaela Younge and her first with the gallery. Younge has made a vast collection of Merino wool on felt works in her signature style.
Cupid is wearing a thong, a cat is playing the trumpet, and someone is braaing in the art museum. Michaela Younge’s felted compositions appear as scenes from obscure fables. She weaves together popular culture, urban legends, myths and stories into rich narrative scenes. They are at once playful and violent, dark despite their colours. Her work appeals to dream logic, which is no logic, set in places at once familiar and strange.
Venue: Smith Studio, 56 Church Street, Cape Town
Time: Opening Night on Thurs 9 May | Mon – Fri 9am to 5pm | Sat 10am to 1pm | Sun closed
