Thania Petersen at the National Arts Festival

WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to announce that Thania Petersen’s exhibition, Between Land and a Raised Foot, had a well-received run at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown. Her work showed at the Monument Basement and Raw Spot Gallery over the 27th of June – 7th of July.

Thania Petersen’s exhibition subtly explores the revolutionary and healing potential of walking, as bodies, minds and spirits connect with land. While everyday walking may seem mundane, walking can be profoundly spiritual and politically charged. Soulful walking can ignite memories, arouse ancestors or register revolt.
