Situated at the gateway to the vibrant area of De Waterkant, Ground Art Caffe offers a combination of the artistic endeavours of Barista, Chef and Art Curator. The Coffee, Food and Art are each treated with equal respect and attention to detail, as we believe each is an art in itself.
Ground’s own unique African Arabica coffee is sourced and roasted by our dedicated artisan roaster, using only top scoring beans and micro-roasting methods to create healthy, low caffeine, naturally sweet and most significantly, fresh coffee. Poured with skill, ground coffee is fast becoming one of Cape Town’s appreciated favourite.
Ground Art is excited to present the group collaboration titled Transitions, depicting leaps in the artists life from chaos to order. Transitions started with observing the flow of chaos and order between zones of quietude and stressful, busy moments where big changes in their lives occurred. Moments of flux that accompany experiencing starkly different cultures, countless moves, acclimatizing to new environments and forming and nurturing new relationships are vital to the project.
Thurlo and Jürgen styles' converse with each other as Adam's drone tracks mirror the fleeting emotions invoked in the drawings. It's been fascinating to watch the work develop, from a simple point of departure to a strong focus on portraiture emulating the theme.
Adam Douglas is a musician, writer, photographer and educator living in Tokyo, Japan. He records under the names Kemek, Deeper Than Space and Dechirico, and previously collaborated with Jürgen Dünhofen on Drone Project 1.
