Rock Dove Song – the ability to return home, is a solo exhibition by artist Carol-Anne Gainer featured at the Artist Walkabout on World Mental Health day October 10th at Daor Contemporary Gallery.
In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, the public can view her work and explore these multiple, entangled, fragile and invisible connections we have with ourselves, each other and our environments.
Having experienced a “highly anxious period” in her life, Gainer’s art often utilises unconventional materials such as psych-meds, urine and ceremonial powders and a wide range of media.
She tackles vulnerable yet powerful commentary on her own healing and a recognition of the suffering related to mental health.
Her work is exhibited internationally and locally where over the past two decades Carol-Anne’s work has centred around the body, place and spirit.
Rock Dove Song is on exhibit until November 8th 2019. (Gallery hours: Tues – Fri 9am to 5pm | Sat 10am to 2pm)
Venue: Coode Crescent, V&A Port,Cape Town
Time: 11am to 12pm
