With an increasing focus on African Art around the world, Eclectica Contemporary aims to present a carefully selected and focused collection of art from the continent that interrogates the issues facing us in a globalized world. The art at Eclectica often shows practices and materials familiar from art history but which push these boundaries and explore uncharted territories of representation, technique and theory.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Eclectica Contemporary sees itself as an African gallery with an international vision. We celebrate the diversity and depth of art making on our continent while aiming to contextualize this for a growing global market.
Our program of exhibitions shows a mix of solo shows by gallery artists alongside curated group shows. In addition, the Eclectica Contemporary exhibition space has facilities for experimental, new media and project-based works.
Kyu Sang Lee (b. 1993) is a visual artist who is currently living and working in Germany but
previously lived and studied in South Africa.
He works primarily with photography, extending and expanding his use of the medium to also encompass installation and video. Acknowledging photography’s capacity to draw on memory, time and space, he focuses on constructing realms of the metaphysical and the surreal. His work is often meditative and contemplative, making use of form as a kind of visual puzzle. A strong aesthetic vocabulary is employed to juxtapose concepts such as dark and light, and time and fate.
