There's Something I Must Tell You

iziko Slave Lodge

There’s something I must tell you’ is an exhibition over five galleries that was held at the Iziko Slave Lodge. It showed work done by South African artist Sue Williamson over a period of over 30 years, from 1981 to 2013. At the beginning of this period, the country was experiencing some of the harshest years of apartheid.

The exhibition ran from June 2014 to June 2015.

Catalogue

The catalogue was developed as an educational resource for the Iziko Museums of South Africa - Slave Lodge. It features images of artworks from different Sue Williamson series accompanied by a brief history of each of the influential woman they portray.

 

Design

To add interest to the open space and to have unique elements in this publication I illustrated simple stencil style drawings of a few of these iconic women. I used them for the cover as well as the title pages of the different series. I used hand drawn letters (which were part of the exhibition) as backgrounds to the images and their details for extra subtle detail to the pages.

 

I used a soft, warm, neutral peachy-cream palette. It reminds me of a warm welcoming home of a mother or grandmother. Of how influential and strong leading woman are while they convey a gentle and welcoming presence because of their nurturing and caring nature. In my life, the family leaders are all women. It's a different kind of leadership; there is no power struggle because for women it's not really about power – it's about family, the community and putting others before yourself. No show boating or beating of chests, no displays of dominance, just the pure drive to do what is best for those you care about. So that's why I chose this colour palette.
