Candice Breitz: Extra!

This exhibition was created on the set of the soap opera Generations – the most watched television programme on the African continent. In Extra!, Candice Breitz inserts herself into a number of actual scenes from the series, resonating as a conspicuously white presence amongst an otherwise black cast. The resulting images are simultaneously thought provoking and uncomfortably amusing – raising questions about what it might mean to be white in the context of contemporary South Africa. The tour of Candice Breitz: Extra! to Cape Town is generously supported by the Goethe-Institut, South Africa, and the Standard Bank Gallery.
