#OFMArtBeat - Grounded - Art under lockdown

Grounded by The Department of Fine Arts at the University of the Free State. Grounded consists of work created by staff and students from the Department of Fine Arts at the University of the Free State. The participating artists are Lyrene Kuhn- Botma, Andisa Luvalo, Jaco Spies, Adelheid von Maltitz, Leon Witthuhn, Bontle Tau, Juané Venter, Janine Allen, Johandi du Plessis, Dina Grobler, Kara Schoeman, Ben Botma and Willem Boshoff.

The artworks were made before and during lockdown and the initial idea of being grounded originates from the idea of being grounded at home during the lockdown. Grounded in the sense of being restricted and being tied down by an authority operating above the self. However, the meaning of the term “grounded” also suggests having a sagacious ability, thus to make good decisions and an admirable and unpretentious understanding on issues. The valence of the term is embedded within its potential conflicted meanings and offers an energy suitable for an exhibition taking place amidst the Covid 19 pandemic.
