Exchange grant residency GreatMore Studios, Cape Town and Hangar (2012)

Period of residence: April – June 2012

Conor Ralphs is a permanent resident artist at Greatmore Art Studios in Cape Town, South Africa. His work is multi-disciplinary in nature and includes painting, photography, film and experiential research. The thread connecting his work is an interest in the expression of personal and political freedom despite the difficulties of contemporary life. He has exhibited in various exhibitions in South Africa and Madagascar and held his first solo painting show titled “Equal in Silver” in 2009. Current topics of interest and ongoing projects include: research into illicit sea migration; developing an exchange program with Africa and its surrounding islands; researching the human implications of astronomical research in southern Africa’s telescope towns as well as Africa/China relations.

During his residency at Hangar Conor intends to explore areas of convergence between human migration and astronomical research, particularly relating to the quest for meaning and for indications/signs and well as the conditions for life (presence).
