Artist's / designer's statements
Invisible is a PosterZine riffing on the changing of the city of Bellville's identity from an overtly Afrikaner one to a more Afropolitan one through migration and accompanying trade systems.
"Scott Eric Williams is a self-taught artist from Cape Town. Williams uses diverse media, which range from sculpture with recycled materials and weaving to street art. Williams is moved to create empathetic work, with an intention to contribute to a multifaceted image of African identity.
Scott's work reflects on urban migrations contemplating land, hope and trade within the inner-city. Through use of urban detritus he strives to make sense of the city by engaging with its leftovers. His work embeds a sense of site-specificity due to the nature of materials from stores & locations which are traditionally run by African foreigners to interrogate the welcome with which refugees are received.
Scott was a founding member of Burning Museum collective (2012) who have exhibited at The Centre for African Studies - UCT, Brundyn+, Kunsthaus Dresden & on the streets of Cape Town. His work includes regular Youth Facilitation at District Six Museum and research & archiving at Africa South Art Initiative. Most recently Scott was part of the coordination committee for the ZinesinZAR minifestival, a member of the Thupelo - Triangle Network assembly working committee and a participant of Openlab 2016.
