​Andrew Munnik

​Fried Contemporary is proud to present an exhibition by Andrew Munnik in the Collectors Room, curated by MAPSA (Modern Art Projects South Africa).


Andrew Munnik’s approach to making work would appear to be set, theoretically within a global political perspective. Thus, the works are visual attempts to come to terms with the realities of states of violence, particularly in the context of migration, statelessness and ethnicity.

The massive movement of peoples across the globe, has a sense of a ‘living tsunami, for him, as millions move North, South, East and West. This has resulted, paradoxically, in an initial outpouring of sympathy, but has, in many places, culminated in anger. 

The loss of, not only possessions, and homes, but more significantly, identity, is almost total.  Since he does not experience there ‘tragedies’, personally, he can only reflect on it, as a member of the human race, and, as a visual artist, through the making of artwork.

The level of the above events is global, and since it makes ‘no sense’ to him, he seems to respond with content, method and manner that exploit the absurd, the incomprehensible, the scale, and ultimately, the tragedy to convey his thoughts.
