David Krut Podcast host Britt Lawton was in conversation with architect, artist, designer and creativity expert Theresa Hardman. Theresa shared her knowledge from research dine from her PhD thesis - Understanding Intuition in the Creative Process - completed at the University of the Free State in 2019. Theresa has presented her knowledge on the topic at conferences in Durban, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Pretoria. Topics covered include what is creativity; the importance of solitude and collaboration; the rational and non-rational aspects of the creative process; psychology and Eastern philosophical influences on understanding the creative experience; the external factors that nurture creativity; mindfulness versus mindlessness... ; much more! Theresa concludes that creative intuition can be understood and actively nurtured in the academic creative arts context and aims to share this knowledge with the world - beyond the academic environment. "The most beautiful thing that we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed." - Albert Einstein The David Krut Podcast is a production of David Krut Projects.

In this podcast episode, artist Pebofatso Mokoena and David Krut Podcast host Britt Lawton are in conversation about Mokoena's first solo exhibition at the David Krut Gallery in Johannesburg titled 'Internal Probes' (27 February - 4 April 2020). Listening Time | 18 min Pebofatso Mokoena first collaborated with the team at David Krut Workshop (DKW) in the production of a hard-ground etching titled 'Statistical Weakness' in 2018. The collaboration built on the relationship Mokoena established as an intern at David Krut Projects (DKP) in 2016. In 2019, he was commissioned among four other artists to do a multi-colour silkscreen print for LATITUDES Art Fair as part of their VIP Package. The resulting print '¾ Progress on the Edge of Play' was completed in collaboration with printer Roxy Kaczmarek from DKW and displayed prominently at LATITUDES. Mokoena’s body of work in 'Internal Probes' mimics the mental experience of urban environments and modes of movement that are seemingly unstable, and the associated, unavoidable sense of claustrophobia and confusion. Density is a key formal feature of this body of work, and is visually achieved by both abstract and figurative elements, as well as technical decisions relating to colour and medium. Pebofatso opens up about the themes behind his latest body of work and the process whereby he translates them into works on paper. He also elaborates on his conceptual interests, issues of overpopulation, the effects of density on infrastructure and transport and the influence of skill-sharing and collaboration.

This episode is taken from a conversation hosted at David Krut Projects on 17 November 2019, in conjunction with the exhibition - William Kentridge: 27 Years of collaboration with David Krut. http://davidkrutprojects.com/exhibitions/52442/52442 The panel discussion unpacked the most common questions that crop up around Kentridge’s printmaking – the creation, the editioning, the gallery presence, and how it all comes together. William Kentridge is one of the great multi-disciplinary artists of our time, whose voice resonates not only in South Africa, but all over the world. As a modern pioneer in the medium, printmaking plays a foundational role in Kentridge’s practice, with series of works overlapping and informing large-scale projects in other media. Making up the Q&A panel are individuals that have their finger on the pulse, so to speak, of Kentridge’s practice and the presence of his work in both primary and secondary markets. Master Printer Jillian Ross has been working with the David Krut Workshop since 2003 and has collaborated with Kentridge on a number of print series, including the iconic Nose series of thirty etchings, the Universal Archive extensive body of linocuts and, most recently, the large-scale Triumphs and Laments Woodcut Series. With her nuanced understanding of the role of printmaking in Kentridge’s practice, as well as the complex relationship between artist and print workshop, Ross is an expert on the fascinating process and technical aspects of the work. Amé Bell is the Director of the David Krut Projects galleries and has an immersive understanding of the “front of house” aspect of Kentridge’s work, from, documentation, to presentation in the form of exhibitions and publications, to administration and promotion of Kentridge’s work on the primary market. Dealing with questions on a daily basis from those coming in to see and purchase Kentridge’s work has given Bell an understanding of what aspects of the prints people are most intrigued by in the gallery. James Sey is the Marketing and Media Manager at Aspire Art Auctions, a progressive and dynamic South African auction house specializing in curated selections of the best art being produced on the African continent. Considering that Kentridge is one of the only living South African artists with a strong and stable presence on the secondary market, Sey’s insight into Kentridge’s work answers some of the many questions collectors have around the value and longevity of the artist’s output. The discussion will be facilitated by Jacqueline Flint, an independent writer, curator and researcher who has been engaging with Kentridge’s printmaking oeuvre to varying degrees since 2008. As with any artist, research is a vital component in making sense of the work – knowledge of the different aspects of an artist’s practice in any single work, or body of works, leads to a nuanced understanding and appreciation. In the case of Kentridge’s prints this is especially significant. David Krut Podcast is a production of David Krut Projects. Edited and produced by Hagen Gersie.
