Artist Bio

Artist Mark Rautenbach lives in and works from Cape Town. His work ranges from public performance to intricate studio production. Contradictory and paradoxical combinations of materials and techniques often feature in this work; things like knitting education documents in public, making precious 'entomological' vitrines from love letters and death certificates and curious and endearing 3D creature-like objects from matter which can't be composted nor recycled. He often uses craft- type techniques like knitting, to make art works that afford the viewer/participant an opportunity to experience very ordinary things in a peculiar way.
