About "Kaapse Klopse"

These two minstrels where captured on their way up Wale street in Cape Town .The contentious Coon Carnival is a yearly minstrel festival in Cape Town beginning on New Years day and continues into January. Minstrels from America who first visited the Cape in 1848 (10 years after the then British colony had abolished slavery but years before emancipation) the American minstrels were white, but they blackened their faces with burnt cork. Inspired, the variation organized by local former slave population, took on a critical tongue in cheek festivity and many songs were written specifically to mock their former masters. The Festivities include street parades with singing and dancing, costume competitions and marches through the streets. Since 2002 local government and business have sponsored the carnival - not without accompanying scandals.

About Gary

Gary Frier

"I believe that making art is a compulsive act of self expression that can only be realized through the collaborative act of creating and experiencing. Creating art for me is about constantly reflecting on my place in the reality. Using art to express a emotional and intellectual and tactile value, discovering how to distill and interpret my interaction with what surrounds me and documenting that personal relationship.
