Join us to learn more about exhibitions by Jenkin van Zyl and Uma Breakdown. Led by our Senior Producer Charlotte Horn, the tour will begin in the foyer and will last approximately 45-60 minutes.

Jenkin's immersive installation transports you to his hallucinatory film world where couples must compete in a grueling endurance dance marathon. Discover an energy-drink lined trophy room and watch Jenkin's film, Surrender, from inside the belly of a giant metallic rat.

Spanning installation, writing and video games, Uma’s Earth A.D. 2 draws on their ongoing research into collective repair. The space can be thought of as a video game ‘save room’, where players can rest, or hold useful items collected along the way. Inside, you’ll find collections of sculptures carefully piled with objects that resemble maps and projected fragments of video games.
