‘ifestile’ is Suburbia Contemporary’s first exhibition in the Bo-Kaap neighbourhood of Cape Town. Proposing a selection of artworks that manifest through different types of media, from emerging and established artists in the heart of Cape Town. By expanding beyond the four walls of the gallery, and similar institutional spaces; ‘ifestile’ offers a window into aspects of everyday life that uniquely inform the art world as we know it. Curated by Kim Makin and Francesco Ozzola in a salon-style, ‘ifestile’ seeks contact across alternative contexts. In this way, different paths have been chosen that, through the artists’ gaze offer new possibilities for discovery and adventure in and out of the city. Where ‘ifestile’ presents the isiXhosa translation for ‘window’ in English, through a play on language it is interesting to note the manner in which the word similarly translates across local languages with reference to the same root word; ’ifasitela’ in isiZulu, ‘venster’ in Afrikaans, ‘lefasetere’ in Sepedi, ‘fensethere’ in Setswana, to name but a few. Thus, the exhibition presents unique aspects of every day, that simultaneously speak to some shared experience across space, place and people.
