From the exhibition's press release:
"Line is a basic element of traditional image-making. When multiplied on a flat surface, it creates shape and once freed from the picture plane, it can construct three-dimensional form. In the medical profession, it results in graphs that demonstrate invisible occurrences such as internal body rhythms – thereby signalling the presence or absence of life. In science, line represents trajectories and progressions, thus suggesting cause and effect over time. Line, therefore, maps routes and connects things across space and time. 
 
Blindfolded line, dancing through time is a site-specific mixed-media installation and a playful investigation of the dichotomy that exists between inner and outer landscape. The “blindfolded line” suggests the creative process as an ongoing journey: a continuous exploration driven by free association, inadvertent connections, interdisciplinary collaboration and repetitive actions. Whereas this exhibition is on the one hand an attempt to visually manifest the above points, it is, more importantly, an exploration of the creative process itself; a search, in the manner of many an explorer: with blind faith and vague direction.  
 
The line strives to dance but mostly stumbles ahead into unknown territories. As with most explorations, the outcome is often a surprise."

Through her participatory environments, Liza Grobler (b. 1974, Cape Town) explores the interactions between the physical presence of the viewer, the space in which the work is experienced and the constructed form. Her installations explore the relationship between inner and outer landscape as an experiential rather than a conceptual space. The viewer is encouraged to travel with her into an imaginary world where everything is in flux and anything is possible. The objects, images and installations are constructed through collaboration, interaction and exchange.
