“Vuka Kwedini” will be Mr Fuzzy Slipperz’ first show in Germany and will take place at the Raum Für Drastische Maßnahmen, opening on the 11th of October 2012. Following his first solo show in Cape Town “Something has changed in me” (2010)
The title of the exhibition “Vuka kwedini” means ‘Wake Up Boy’ in Xhosa which is his mother tongue. The title and theme from this line of works seeks to portray our different states of consciousness. Illustrating that though we are awake and seem present, our minds wander off to different internal realms and realities, as if our bodies are walking, talking shells and our minds a vast playground for the imagination. Whether consciously or subconsciously we are constantly playing out our ambitions, anxieties, memories, fears and aspirations and are even able to deal with our troubles and love life this way. “Vuka Kwedini”(Wake Up Boy) is the voice that snaps us back into the real world, like a parent waking their child for school.
