Moje’kJoe Papapaah felt like deserting the bridge for a while: It would be a while before the Jotmaster and the apprentice return from their expedition of the current textual chain. Moments earlier when he checked the monitor all was well with them within the tex-Ah-verse. And outside of the cockpit he observed that the alpha numerical belts were stable as the hover craft cruised smoothly. It could be an hour or so before they crack the current code. At any rate the Jotmaster preferred to move cautiously in these matters, preferring to savour every detail of the pseudo reality erected by the alphanumerical belts.

Within the Class Coach, interview with Michael Selekane


Mmutle Arthur Kgokong: Thank you Michael for agreeing to see me for this interview with regard to your work as an artist. I hope you feel good today, that you feel alright, despite the winter, the chills, I’ve heard that you’ve been to Grahamstown recently .

Michael Selekane: Yes, in the last two weeks

MAK: How was Grahamstown’s weather?

MS: It was very cold, but the last week of the festival it was raining, it was enjoyable.

–          Was it the first time you went to Grahamstown?

–          No, It’s was my third time there, but first time when I went there I exhibited at a flea market, second time I exhibited at the Barat Centre and this year I exhibited at the Albany Museum. It is like Grahamstown has different steps of exhibiting. First time there you do not start at a good space or gallery,  you had to start at the ‘French Exhibitions’, that’s where I exhibited last year, they call them local artists exhibitions,  then when you have passed those stages you get a chance to exhibit at the Albany Museum or Monument.
