Investec Cape Town Art Fair 2024

In the midst is a body of work portraying moments of pause in an ever-changing world.

To be “in the midst” is to be in the middle of an activity or space. It is a moment or place of flux. The paintings and monotypes explore this in-betweenness through interior scenes that are juxtaposed with expansive exteriors. A figure peering out of the window. A landscape with a deep blue pool. By pairing inside scenes with the outside world, In the midst brings forth an element of reflection.

This body of work is about Gauteng, and perception and atmosphere and the built environment and a bunch of other things as well.

The light in Gauteng is of a particular quality. Something between gold (like that which is extracted) and yellow (like the extraction’s detritus). Something between aurum and uranium. Treasure and toxicity. This is particularly so of the winter light, which is a potpourri of dust and carbon and altitude and veld and gold.

Through this work Marsi explores the idea of belonging to a place, a family and a culture by investigating and reinterpreting the photographs taken by her maternal grandmother and other family members during apartheid.

"Themes of fragmentation and fluidity are reflected in a combination of image, text, tactility and performance, and a mix of media that includes drawing, painting and photography."

“My approach for this body of work is not critical per se, but rather celebratory. I am creating a world which not only represents the present but also where the viewer and myself can prophesize the future.”
