It was my very first time at the Circa Gallery, even though I have walked past it on numerous occasions on my way to where the food is. It’s an unexpectedly beautiful building with curved walls which lead to the galleries and the lounge area on the top floor. From the top, it has amazing views of Parktown and beyond.
We were there for the ‘Dark City’ collaborative project by architecture graduate, artist and researcher Hariwe; Photographer Jono Wood and Filmmaker Dirk Chalmers. ‘Dark City’ is the culmination of a three-year project by the three creatives which highlights the inner city problem of Doorfontein’s ‘bad buildings’. Harrowing subject matter in a beautiful building. I will return for further exhibitions.
