Assemblage is excited to currently have Cydney Eva of PatternNation on residency. Join us on Friday 7 April from 6pm for a collaborative art opening of immersive painting, interactive sculpture and experimental performances.

Inspired by the 1966 sci-fi film Fantastic Voyage, in which the voyagers travel inside of the human body. This exploration in space, pattern and self expression aims to create another world of creativity that consumes the room. Self reflection, connection, surrealism, fun, play and interaction are all elements that have brought together this group of artists from Joburg, Durban, and Vancouver. Assemblage artist in resident Cydney Eva founder of PatternNation aims to create a truly collaborative performative night that breaks away from conventional art functions and allows us to laugh, dance, observe, play and groove together. This voyage will consist of 3 experimental hip hop and RnB performances happening in different parts of the gallery space. DJ owabowa will hold down the night with a mixture of base music, feminist/queer rap, house and hip hop. There will also be a small pop up shop of PatternNation painted and silkscreened clothing, PatternNation rope jewelry and the collaborative zines made in the workshop with alphabet zoo.
