Knitted Hope

by Eyal de Leeuw | 01.02.14

Fashion, art and human rights – all connected in GHOSTS, new exhibition by the artist (and video clip director) Ralph Ziman. Johannesburg-born Ziman invited six Zimbabwean craftsmen to produce a series of replica AK-47s, bullets, and clothing using traditional African beading and knitting techniques. These ghosts, says Ziman, are the “nameless faceless people” killed in the many wars of the continent.
All profits from the exhibition, shown from Feb 8th in C.A.V.E. Gallery, L.A, will be donated to Human Rights Watch (both from selling photographs and the knitted weapon sculptures).
