IN THE beginning, a room full of posters seemed like an awkward format for an exhibition – one which might not immediately connect with the observer’s sense of their depth and meaning – at face value that is.
WHEN Brent Meistre asked me to open this exhibition, I was dubious about my ability to introduce what he does to the general public, as the material, while visually accessible, carries the weight of a very particular philosophy and approach to landscape which is less easily explained. I am thankful that, for most of us, the experience of standing alone in landscape is relatively easy to do as we live close to the kinds of landscape which he has photographed. To be physically in landscape in this country is a primal sensation – it is literally where we’re grounded – where we develop a sense of place and belonging - and it is the space in which we conduct our lives and where we are buried.

ARCHITECTURE and education have long had a comfortable relationship – combining philosophy with process, art with practical design and presentation with realisation. So it comes as no surprise when the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) and the Eastern Cape Institute of Architects (ECIA) come together to host an exhibition that highlights how the two interface.
