WE HAVE EYES TO SEE BUT DO NOT SEE – NAMIBIA
Large-format photographs mounted on billboards in the African Quarter and it’s surrounding
The photographic series WE HAVE EYES TO SEE BUT DO NOT SEE – NAMIBIA by South African photographer Abrie Fourie is a meditation on places and landscapes in Namibia. Fourie embarked on a journey to Namibia in the 1990s to photographically document the formerly colonised territories. The images confront both the visible and the invisible, harking back to the unknown and known history of colonialism. At first glance, they reflect a surreal beauty of Namibian landscapes that become even more surreal once placed in relation to the colonial history of these natural spaces.
