Bert Pauw was born in Somerset West, Cape Town in 1993. He grew up in Pretoria, and after finishing high school, moved to Cape Town where he currently lives and works. He graduated from Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2015 and is a recipient of the Simon Gerson Prize. As an interdisciplinary artist, Pauw chooses to work equally across the realms of sculpture, photography and installation.
Indistinguishable Moments (2013 – ongoing)
There is no overarching narrative in this collection of over 2000 photographs. For me it is a type of travel photography consisting of idiosyncratic observations. I have memories of each photo, not necessarily significant, but something. The collection is an amalgamation of landscapes, infrastructure, furniture, shops, advertising, strange objects, normal objects, trash, people and sometimes nothing.
