Sasol New Signatures Art Competition

■ Stellenbosch student Jessica Storm Kapp, 22, has been announced as the winner of the 2018 Sasol New Signatures Art Competition. Kapp won for her rammed earth columns and embedded object installation piece titled Mapping Time. The artwork investigates whether fine art can evoke multisensory experiences of home through the use of retrieved objects and materials. Being a collector of things, the action of retrieval as well as the histories attached to found objects are central themes in Kapp’s investigations into home, following the event of the Knysna Fires in 2017. Kapp is currently completing her undergraduate degree in Fine Art at Stellenbosch University and walks away with a cash prize of R100 000 and the opportunity to have a solo exhibition at the Pretoria Art Museum in 2019.
