Artist Admin provides administrative support to artisans, musicians, painters, illustrators, photographers, videographers, designers, coders or anyone who’s creative for a living.
Located at 79 Roeland Street, Artist Admin offers a small short-term rental space which hosts events and exhibitions by local artists and creatives. With a large glass frontage easily viewed from the pavement, the space has many curious passers-by who are intrigued by the busy Artist Admin office. The space is not only available for art exhibitions but also for workshops, pop-ups, and pretty much anything you can think of.
Elmarie Van Straten will be exhibiting her latest body of work, Coded Reality, from 2 - 15 December 2021 in the Artist Admin exhibition space.
Van Straten's exhibition, Coded Reality, explores the tensions and connection between the organic, mechanical, and digital, and how they relate to our everyday lives.
"Digital Technology is so fiercely integrated into our daily lives that we forget that our phones are mechanical. They have evolved into something more - almost more organic. It is something we have a relationship with, almost a new appendage.
"The idea from the matrix that we are all plugged in against our will has somewhat come to fruition. The only difference being that we opted in and now most of us are addicted to our digital appendages. Forever connected, yet seldomly connecting. Not being able to put the phone, tablet, or laptop down for more than a few minutes at a time. A digital opioid, so to speak.
"The future is digital.”
