Experimenting with unconventional materials and pushing the boundaries of traditional printmaking by subverting registrations and defying the assumed archival expectations of prints…Exploring the relationship between two-dimensional prints and three dimensional installations which subtlety and subliminally manifest in our everyday environments.
Simone Heymans recently obtained her MFA, from Rhodes University, Grahamstown (with distinction).
Heymans creates and installs phenomenological site-specific intermedia interventions and installations as a method of observing how one negotiates the mind and body within spaces, places and non-places.
She is interested in the relationship between two-dimensional works on paper and three-dimensional alternative installation spaces.
Simone is a member of the Visual and Performing Arts of Africa research group led by Professor Ruth Simbao at the Department of Fine Art, Rhodes University.
