Abstract

Strangely, the foreigner lives within us: he is the hidden face of our identity, the space that wrecks our abode, the time in which understanding and affinity flounder. By recognising him within ourselves, we are spared detesting him in himself (Kristeva 1991:1). Johan Thom's exhibition, entitled Exorcismseries, was presented from 9 to 30 April 2003 at the National Cultural History Museum in Pretoria. Thom takes a significantly embodied approach to his art-making practice.
