Artist: Christine Dixie (South Africa)
Sulger-Buel Lovell is proud to present Christine Dixie's The Santiago Cross: Invisible Trade in a solo booth at this years' Investec Cape Town Art Fair 2018.
The Santiago Cross: Invisible Trade, draws upon and extends concerns developed in the video installation 'To Be King'. The painting Las Meninas by Diego Velásquez (1565) and a subsequent essay on the painting by Michel Foucault (1966) were the impetus for To Be King. In this installation the intersecting vectors of psycho-social power relations was reframed against the backdrop of the South African Eastern Cape landscape.
The Santiago Cross: Invisible Trade, recontexualises images drawn from the stop-frame animation component of the To be King installation through the lens of ‘trade’. “Invisible trade, in economics, the exchange of physically intangible items between countries. Invisible trade can be distinguished from visible trade, which involves the export, import, and re-export of physically tangible goods.” (Source: www.britannica.com/topic/invisible-trade)
