Botho project space present A place called homeshowcasing the works of an award-winning contemporary visual artist and stylist Trevor Sturman. Trevor’s highly anticipated first solo exhibition officially opened on May 19 and will run until June 19, 2022 in Johannesburg.
A Place called Home is where Trevor Stuurman’s story and journey begins. He capitulates in the exhibition by personifying various themes and installations, all created to live throughout the house created by Botho Project Space. Home is the foundation of Trevor’s world, constantly choosing to create his understanding of the world he sees through his own familiarity.
A Place Called Home is a celebration that seeks to continue a fractured but existing conversation: to lengthen and widen the table, to make room for more people to come together, and ultimately to build a culture of community, reminding us that Home is a place of ‘membership. .
Told through the lens of Trevor Stuurman, the exhibition is an expression of “Home”, a concept close to his heart. Evoking the nostalgic feeling of a loved one waking you up at the first light of dawn, soaking in a hot bath, scrubbing on the weekends, and stepping out in your “Sunday Best”.
Set in a house in Parktown West in Johannesburg, South Africa and in partnership with SA’s leading furniture brand, Weylandts, the idea behind the exhibition was to recreate a space where people relive their own Sundays at home , memories and special moments that make these days sacred in any South African home further promoting the “good life”.
Born in Kimberley, Trevor reveals how the HOME he was born into is a theme that translates into everything he creates and the spaces he occupies. His eye is drawn to things that resemble and ultimately encompass the feeling of being at home.
“Home is where we surrender to our vulnerability. A space to shape people and thrive in. It is where humans discover their own version of comfort, solace and meaning. Home is a place where we are known. Home is also the central point that allows us to navigate the world” says Trevor Stuurman.
Born Kimberley (South Africa), Trevor Stuurman, is an award-winning contemporary visual artist and designer. With clients like Beyonce for Black is King, Disney’s Black Panther or Barack Obama, he has toured around the world and on the African continent capturing the lexicon of African portraiture and dynamism.
Trevor’s group exhibitions include DIGITALIA at the African Diaspora Museum in San Francisco, VOGUE Photo Festival and curating installations at Absolut One Source Live and the Motsepe Foundation’s Mandela 100 Summit during Global Citizen. With honors such as Time Magazine Next Generation Leader 2021 and listed in Forbes 30 under 30 top creatives in Africa, Trevor has easily established himself as a creative force to be reckoned with.
