South African artists seem to be taking over London (or at least this blog) at the moment: William Kentridge has just been occupying one of Tate Modern’s Tanks, Peter Clarke has a big solo exhibition at Iniva, and now relative newcomer Alexandra Makhlouf has a show at Fred [London]. Using watery ink, she creates ghostly forms whose presence on paper seems only transitory; the artist describes this impermanence as a ‘return to blankness’, relating it to the silencing effect produced by certain political machinations in South Africa.
