Any Given Sunday

The anonymous and random public artistic interventions that comprised Any Given Sunday—which originally took place in the city of Cape Town and its townships from 15 May – 24 July 2016— were intended to reflect on the social, economic and political tensions of Cape Town, set against its histories and relevant sites. This covert approach underscored the central intention of the series: as a gentle and submerged way of foregrounding contested notions of visibility and acceptance in the city’s racially segregated spaces.

ICONography

The use of biblical scenes and scriptures have been a popular subject matter in many artists work. From as early as Byzantine period with commissions given to artists by churches, through the Renaissance these scenes are popular with Western artists. Locally during the period 1960s to 1990s artists from art centres such as Rorke’s Drift and Ardmore were also drawing from scriptures as themes and subjects to their work, but very much personalizing it to their customs, believes and interpretations.
