Gallery Gathering - Here I Am But Am I Here - Solo Exhibition by Jeanette Verster

Date & Time: 1:00 pm March 17, 2024
- 5:00 pm March 17, 2024

At surface level the phrase “Here I am but am I here?” acknowledges one’s physical location, almost like a reply to another very familiar question, “Are we there yet?”. However, the ambiguity of the second part of the first phrase challenges the notion that mere physical proximity equates to true presence. The juxta- position of “here I am” and “but am I here” highlights the interplay between tangible and intangible aspects and complexities of our existence and identity. Similarly, “Are we there yet?” metaphorically permeates various aspect of life. It embodies the human inclination to seek closure but also suggests the transformative power of a journey.

In this body of work there are representations of physical journeys and places as well as abstract works that are merely a part of an ongoing quest in the search for belonging and connection to the present. The use of a multitude of techniques and media embrace uncertainties and recognizes that a true destination is not a point on a map but a culmination of experiences gathered along the way.
