Katz, Bronwyn
Born 1993 in Kimberley, South Africa
Lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa
Through her work, Bronwyn Katz engages with land as a repository of memory, motivated by the capacity of the landscape to remember and communicate its past. These memories of construction and destruction feed into the physicality of her multi-form work. Bronwyn graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, Cape Town in 2015 and was awarded the Simon Gerson Prize. Notable exhibitions include A Silent Line, Lives Here, Le Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2018); Not A Single Story, Nirox Foundation, Johannesburg (2018); Tell Freedom, Kunsthal KAdE Amersvoort (2018); Le jour qui vient, Galerie des Galeries, Paris (2017); WE CALL IT “AFRICA”, Officine dell’Immagine Gallery, Milan (2017); the 12th Dak’Art Biennale (2016) and The Quiet Violence of Dreams, Stevenson Gallery, Johannesburg (2016). She is a founding member of iQhiya, an 11-women artist collective which has performed across various spaces, including Greatmore Studios, the AVA Gallery, Iziko South African National Gallery, and the performance at documenta 14.
