Botho Project Space presents A Place Called Home, showcasing the works of award winning contemporary visual artist and stylist Trevor Stuurman. The much-anticipated first solo exhibition by Trevor officially opened on the 19th of May and will run until the 19th of June 2022 in Johannesburg.
A Place called Home is where Trevor Stuurman’s story and journey begins. He capitulates himself within the exhibition by personifying various themes and installations, all created to live throughout the home that is created by Botho Project Space. Home is the foundation of Trevor’s world, constantly choosing to create his understanding of the world he sees through his own familiarity.
A Place Called Home is a celebration that aims to continue a fractured yet existing conversation: to make the table longer and wider, making space for more people to come together and ultimately build a culture of community, reminding us that Home is a place of belonging.
Narrated through the lens of Trevor Stuurman, the exhibition is an expression of ‘Home’, a concept very close to his heart. Evoking the nostalgic feeling of a loved one waking you up at the first light of dawn, dipping into a warm bath, scrubbing the weekend away and stepping out in your “Sunday best”.
Set in a home in Parktown West in Johannesburg, South Africa and in partnership with SA’s leading furniture brand Weylandts, the idea behind the exhibition was to re-create a space where people relive their own Sundays at Home, the special memories and moments that make these days sacred in any South African home further promoting ‘good living’.
Born in Kimberley, Trevor unpacks how the HOME he was born into is a theme that translates into everything he creates and in the spaces he occupies. His eye is attracted to things that resemble, and ultimately encompass the feeling of Home.
“Home is the place where we surrender to our vulnerability. A space meant for people to be moulded and ultimately thrive in. It’s where humans discover their own version of comfort, solace and meaning. Home is a place where one is known. Home is also the centre point that allows us to navigate the world” affirms Trevor Stuurman.
Kimberley born (South Africa), Trevor Stuurman, is an award winning contemporary visual artist and stylist. With clients like Beyonce for Black is King, Disney’s Black Panther or Barack Obama he shot all around the world and the African continent capturing the lexicon of African Portraiture and vibrancy.
Trevor’s group exhibition’s include DIGITALIA at The Museum of the African Diaspora in San Fransisco, Photo VOGUE Festival and curation of installations at Absolut One Source Live and the Motsepe Foundation’s Mandela 100 Summit during Global Citizen. With honours such as Time Magazine Next Generation Leader 2021 and listed in Forbes 30 under 30 top creatives in Africa , Trevor has easily cemented himself as a creative force to be reckoned with.
