Richard Hart at WITW

Design Indaba Expo curator Richard Hart’s debut solo exhibition, Kind Pockets, opens at Whatiftheworld in Cape Town this February during the week of Design Indaba.

A mixture of paintings, lithographs, sculpture photography and dressmaking, Kind Pockets is a largely collaborative work by Hart, fashion designer Amanda Laird Cherry and photographer Roger Jardine. The work is an extensive exploration of the concept of the marsupial girl, an imaginary archetype.

Hart is best known as the creative force behind disturbance, the acclaimed Durban based design studio that was recently featured on the cover of the international design journal, ID. Kind Pockets opens at Whatiftheworld / Gallery on Wed 25 Feb at 18:30.
