Easily the most entertaining works on show in the street-level hangar of the Ashkal Alwan building these days are a couple of works by Nelmarie du Preez.Mounting on facing walls are a pair of looped videos from the artist's "Trust Exercises" series. After spending some time with Baroni's exhibition, you may decide that the show's 13 pieces are concerned with a great many things but have very little to do with "hope".Of the 13 pieces on show, two of them qualify as objects.The other 11 works in "Hope After Hope" may be thought of a "new media" – newer, anyway, than aluminum, vinyl and whatever material was used for the Cremonini reproductions.Will this tweet inspire mimesis among anyone strolling through "Hope After Hope," you wonder.This elegant work is comprised of two identical, cube-shaped galleries, each of which is equipped with an overhead projector – a once-new mediating technology that projected images upon a wall via plastic transparencies.
