The Lockdown Series was born out of a desire to want to create during the South African national lockdown. Many creatives and artists were feeling overwhelming pressure to make and be productive over this time while simultaneously dealing with the unprecedented feelings and concerns that came with the global pandemic. This series aimed to give some direction to those involved as well as promote collaboration amongst artists.
Each artist was interviewed about their experience of self isolation, the audio of which was then distributed amongst the participating artists. Each participant was asked to create a work in response to the sound bite they received. There was no limit on medium, other than that the work would need to be displayed digitally.
Each artist's response can be seen here, along with the
audio that they were reacting/ responding to.
