Ons Perspektief

A Virtual Exhibition

Ons Perspektief is a collaboration between the Dutch art/hip-hop collective BrotherTill and various South African rymklets artists. They merged musical styles and backgrounds to create work that transcends not just musical genres, but also the boundaries between disciplines, countries, and cultures.

For the Vrystaat Arts Festival, BrotherTill curated a virtual gallery that guides the viewer through the diverse work of this art project. A retrospective exhibition.

Hoe klink ONS

A poetical, visual and symphonic conversation between four artists and two cities: Cape Town and Zwolle.

October 2020 – during the Corona crisis – the artist duo BrotherTill and film maker Jonathan Sipkema from The Netherlands worked together with South African word artist Jitsvinger and film maker Lindsey Appolis on a unique project. In this film project they looked for new ways to get to know each other via digital channels. Their work stemmed from the idea: listening is looking, and looking is listening. “How does the streaming water sound on your side? Which song do the birds sing in the evening? Which sound sits under your skin?” In the 72-hour-long film project, four artists came to know each other through the words they put to the sounds of their homes and the poetry of the city they imagined.

The film project falls within the international collaboration project ONS Perspektief.

The story is simple, not the consequences. After years, a man and woman meet again at their child’s grave, but they are different – he moved on, she didn’t. They lost a child, then themselves, then each other. What now? This performance was recorded during the 2017 Vrystaat Arts Festival.
