Tsoko Gallery presents an exhibition titled ‘The Blind Men and The Elephant’ featuring the works of 4 dynamic artists; Mavis Tauzeni, Option Nyahunzvi, Terrence Musekiwa and Tawanda Reza. These 4 have come together, to capture the essence of the poem from which the exhibition is titled, written by American poet John Godfrey Saxe (1816-1887).
The Blind Men and the Elephant explores the complexities of a shared experience, and questions the power of the individual that makes a conclusion on that experience. Avowals made from a subjective perspective make a statement that is not necessarily true of the thing which is being spoken of, but rather shows the quality of its existence in the mind of the one perceiving it. The show appropriately looks into the adverse reactions that we have all had due to the psychological pressures brought on by the economic, financial and social state that we are in.
The exhibition questions the individual who decides what is, and in most cases, doing so with prejudice.
It is on from 9 June to 15 August 2017.
