SETLHARE:

Viewed from an anthropological eye we see Peo tasting the air for life as he runs beside a chaser Okae. They dash through a parade of trees swinging with no leaves.

The tree’s fruit are air dried pods that flow out of its branches towards any passer-bys. Aware and in appreciation the runner inhales deeply, nose poised in an embrace.
Okae has it hard as he struggles to sway-run and catch the floating food. Each one splatters against his body uncontrollably as its absorbed with ferocious speed…

Setlhare

Everard Read Gallery (in Joburg) is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by renowned artist Atang Tshikare, titled "Setlhare." The exhibition showcases a stunning collection of artworks that explore the integral role of flora in human existence, using the Setswana language to convey the meaning of Setlhare, which means a tree or to heal and give life.
Tshikare's work is a celebration of the vital role that flora plays in every aspect of our lives, from nourishing our bodies through diet to providing essential medicinal properties, from the air we breathe to the shelter we seek. His artwork serves as a bridge between the outer environment and our inner world, emphasizing the importance of this relationship for our physical and emotional well-being.
Through his artwork, Tshikare examines the relationship between humans and nature, focusing on future ideas that can foster a harmonious coexistence between the two. He reminds us that without nature, we risk becoming artificial and losing touch with the very essence of what makes us human. His work encourages us to recognize the importance of our connection to nature and the integral role it plays in our lives.

Peo is in a dream state and manifesting a future. This takes an alignment with visions that are followed by feelings and made into actions. Just like Peo, you are in control of what happens next.
