Bronwyn Lace (1980, Botswana) completed her Bachelor of Arts Fine Arts, University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg in 2004.
Site specificity is one of the things that stirs her imagination into life. Lace focuses her practice on the relationships between art and other fields, including physics, museum practice and philosophy. She elects to work with found, recycled and repurposed elements and often builds her intricate installations responsively and in situ.
Lace’s exhibitions include 2017: Bred in the Bone, a solo exhibition at Circa, Cape Town, South Africa; Southern Abstraction, group exhibition at Everard Read, London, UK; Dead Gardens, a group show curated by Olimpia Bera, Cluj Napoca, Romania; 2016: KulturKontakt, a group exhibition as part of the Austrian Federal Chancellery 2016 residency, Vienna, Austria; Bronze, Steel and Stone, group exhibition at Everard Read, London, UK; 2015: Response, a two person exhibition, Johannesburg, South Africa; Response, an exhibition presentation delivered at the National Smithsonian Museum of African Art, Washington, USA; 2014: Teeming, solo exhibition at SpekePhotographic, Johannesburg, South Africa; 2013: Resuscitate, solo exhibition at Nirox Project Space, Johannesburg, South Africa; 2012: A Tendency Towards Complexity, solo exhibition at CIRCAonJellico, Johannesburg, RSA.
