by Peter McKenzie, Doung Anwar Jahangeer and Guy André Lagesse at the Durban Art Gallery:
Three artists kick a ball from Durban to Algiers and back again in time for the big kick-off. Along the road the Footsak team, like modern day griots interact with «those who make it where they are» :flamboyant football fans, street philosophers, poets, eccentric artists, kings and queens … This fascinating journey through innovative Africa is reflected through video films, sounds, still photography and football paraphernalia. The installation shows complementary, participatory or divergent perspectives of the three artists. Visitors will experience the journey from Algiers to Durban, passing through the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Mozambique and South Africa.
