Justin Davy talks about the recent PLAKKERS exhibition
Justin Davy talks about the recent PLAKKERS exhibition with reflections on some of the dissenting voices who are plakking stamps on a unsuspecting city. Plakking stamps is a phrase derived from Cape Town patois. It refers to giving unwanted, unsolicited and often annoying opinions on a subject.
Justin Davy is an artist and curator based in Cape Town. He is a member of Burning Museum, a collective of artists who engage public spaces and the practices of remembering and forgetting embedded in them. Their most recent work, Manufractured, involved a metrorail train journey reimagined as a mobile museum. An an emerging curator, Davy has been responsible for two exhibitions related to contemporary Cape Town, including the Three Abdullahs: A Geneaology of Resistance and more recently PLAKKERS held at Brundyn+, where he works as a curator. He is currently working on a number of projects, most notably a much needed curated list of the best Gatsby take away shops in the city.
