Roger Gentinetta + Claudia Schwinn, Bloch’s South African parents, curators, producers, caretakers and much more over the last 6 months are now leaving the tree for the next few months in custody of Ryder Molobela at the Art Gallery of Contemporary Art at Graskop Hotel. – After more than 15’000km with Bloch (red) or scouting for its productions (green), they start on a new trip towards Kilimanjaro before they reunited towards the end of the year – We wish them wonderful adventures!
Bloch is currently – and until January 2018 – on show at the art gallery of MAP (Modern Art Project) in Graskop, opposite the Graskop Hotel.
In case the doors are closed or if you want to interact/collaborate with Bloch, please contact Ryder Molobela (073 296 5369) or ask at the reception of the Graskop Hotel.
Bloch made a stop at the “Innibos Laeveld Nasionale Kunstefees” 2017 (5.-8. July) in Mbombela / Nelspruit
Bloch feels almost like home. On the way to Graskop, the forestry area of South Africa, where Bloch will be exhibited. More soon;)
