Werdmuller Centre

Ângela Ferreira

Werdmuller Centre

For her solo exhibition with the gallery, Ângela Ferreira produced a new installation based on Roelof Uytenbogaardt's Werdmuller Centre in Cape Town. The catalogue documents Ferreira's 'investigative art', revealing her thought processes and inquiries into the building, which the artist posits as a prototype for the failure of modernism and its utopian ideals in Africa. Ferreira's working processes take the form of notes, drawings, photomontages and research photographs. These culminate in an installation featuring a large-scale interactive sculpture shown together with an archival photograph of the building that sparked the investigation.
