The show brings together six years of work by Pieter Hugo and marks a move towards a more personalised, introspective approach. It asks & reflects  troubling questions about South African conflict and who we are as a society, past, present and future.
Pieter Hugo, who needs little introduction, was born in Cape Town in 1976 and his work, which is primarily documentary style portraiture, has gained him global success.

Living: The Blaster

Finally, there’s a speaker to match your cooler bag for the sunny, seaside season ahead. Nixon created its first Bluetooth speaker system and we have to admit, they surely know a thing or two about blast-worthy audio devices. Trust us, the Blaster is like nothing you’d find on a crowded must-go shelf.

What about the sound? The Blaster reveals a powerful precision-tuned sound for full-range clarity and low distortion at any level – which allows it to compete with the best in the market.

Waterproof and shockproof, this wireless gadget is perfectly built to take anywhere. Take it to the beach, skate park or a house party, the Blaster is about to make your life BIGGER, BETTER & LOUDER.
