Ab Initio

When: Sept. 12-Oct. 11 2013

It’s not every day that Botswana native Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum visits Davidson. The artist, who resides in South Africa, has been up at Lake Norman for the past three weeks during a Davidson College residency that culminates with an installation, Ab Initio. It showcases what she’s been up to since her arrival on Aug. 26. The site-specific installation is comprised of drawings and projected animation used to formulate a multi-dimensional narrative landscape. Physics, sci-fi, parallel worlds, the universe, human nature and isolation play recurring roles in Sunstrum’s past work. It often has a collage-like feel with layers of details covering a vast spectrum of space.
