noli procrastinare (meaning: “don’t put off until tomorrow what can be done today”) or Kooperasie Stories - Laingsburg, Western Cape
Undertaken in conjunction with the department of Visual Arts at the University of Stellenbosch and the Laingsburg Municipality, Smith’s project will involve the realisation of a festival commemorating the 13th anniversary of the Laingsburg flood. Her proposal outlines a researched set of responses to a planned vloedherdenkingsfees. Following the festival - based on research and reflection -a series of collaborative, permanent sculptural works will be created responding to ideas around reconstruction, vision and co-operation.
Kathryn Smith graduated from Wits University with an MA FA (distinction). She currently works as an artist, curator and researcher and directs the Serialworks project space in Woodstock, Cape Town.
