PHOTOGRAPHY

A visual ode to Ord

A photo pictorial and video interview of renowned and respected artist Jennifer Ord.

She has used visual art as a means of metaphorically and sometimes symbolically expressing ideas regarding what appears to constitute our uni- or perhaps more correctly, multi-verse.

Ord has exhibited locally, nationally and internationally in over eighty group and solo shows; and has been a finalist in competitions such as the Cape Town Triennial and Sasol Wax in Art Competition where, in 2003, she was a merit award winner. From these exhibitions, her work has found its way into private, corporate and public collections. She has also collaborated with the Nigerian-based Pan African Circle of Artists in their promotion of African art by Africans. Her output includes articles in the South African Journal of Art History and a number of catalogues, and a chapter in a book.

Ampersand was responsible for all photography and videography.

Our thanks, always, Jennifer for the stories and deep wisdom.
