A little leaven leavens the whole lump. 


We are malleable beings: kneaded, pressed and moulded by our ideas, rituals and practices as they work upon us and work through us. 


Leaven, the agent that causes dough to rise, provides a metaphor through which to view the work of young artists as they explore the presence and impact of culture, gender, politics and religion in their lives today.

Two weeks into the exhibition, the South African government initiated a national lock-down in response to the growing threat of COVID-19, and the exhibition had to be suspended. In these unexpected circumstances, the theme of the exhibition has acquired a deeper significance. We have experienced Passover in a tangible way, and the Biblical symbol of bread as provision, both physical and spiritual, is a reminder of our ultimate dependence upon God to meet our needs.
