Crossing Gondwana
Fred Clarke


Frederick Clarke presented Into Gondwana, a group of linoleum prints and monotypes, which represent a playful imaginarium with references to the universal, those shared aspects that exceed the geographic and cultural distances.

Gondwana is the name given to the continental shelf (the southern part of two supercontinents that suffered a fracture during the Cretaceous Period

Gondawa included most of the land masses in today’s Southern Hemisphere including Antarctica, South America, Africa, Madagascar and the Australian continent. Then, as clearly is shown by South America and Africa  shapes, they were connected millions of years ago .

In its proposal for this residency South African artist Fred Clarke explores that moment when both landmasses were united and questions similarities, differences, inter-relationships and especially his own experiences of moving to the other part of what once was a unit.


Once back home, Fred sent to us the catalogue of his solo show in South Africa, along with these words:

Attached is a catalogue for a solo exhibition opening tomorrow at Rubix Cube, Arts on Main, Johannesburg – titled “Into Gondwana”. Most of the work on this show was created in Argentina earlier this year, and was greatly inspired by you, and all the other amazing people along the way. Thank you. This show is dedicated to you, and the sister continent of South America. Underneath the Atlantic water, the mountains continue to connect what was, and in many ways still is Gondwana.

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located.
