Lyndi SalesRepresented Artist
Lyndi Sales is an artist who explores themes of perception and vision as well as connectivity. She strives to create in the audience a corporeal response – a feeling of being in one’s own body, to “bring people to their senses”.In her work Sales is invested in driving into the present, seeing it as a mysterious, elusive and mutable idea. Sales is an artist based in Cape Town, South Africa and in 2011 she was chosen to represent her country at the Venice Biennale. For the past few years, she has been working on a series of installations and artworks that seek to investigate the circumstances surrounding the controversial Helderberg plane crash, of which her father was one of the passengers. These constructions, made of intricately cut, pinned paper, rubber and other material which often shed light on the fragile nature of our existence, temporality and how chance plays a role in our lives.
