Overview of printmaking process

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.

Overview of Interventions

“It is significant that the mobilization of site-specific art from decades ago is concurrent with the nomadism of current site-oriented practices.” – Miwon Kwon, One Place after Another: Notes on Site Specificity (1997)

"Experimenting with the relationship between 3-dimensional installation and 2-dimensional printmedia within spaces, places, non-places
and heterotopias which one frequents daily. Using interventions, printerventions & installations as a means of deconstructing, interrogating, excavating,
integrating, innovating, extrapolating
various perceptions of our surroundings.
Perhaps one finds oneself looking at the familiar a little differently.”

ABOUT

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.
