​Ané Lategan - artist
Scupture and installations​​​​
Ané Lategan is an aspiring artist focusing on sculpture and installations. She currently works existentially and intuitively in Pretoria as a full time artist. She graduated in 2016 with a BA Fine Arts from the University of Stellenbosch with a distinction in her practical work. In 2016 and 2017, she was a Top 100 finalist in the Sasol New Signatures competition.  She has also been a part of group exhibitions in Stellenbosch and Pretoria.

She struggles with sensory processing which makes her over sensitive to certain stimuli. This is managed through a proses of sensory integration. Therefore her practice is influenced by the notion of interaction and involves investigations into pressure points that are both bodily and cultural. Her previous installations attempts to activate the viewer's bodily sense of touch and proprioception to catalyze a way of “seeing” and understanding the world.  The context of her work determines the medium that is used. The laborious shelter of the womb and cocoon has been her focus in the season that she is currently in.  There is a resting period of growth followed by the strenuous act of breaking out which is detrimental for the beings to thrive. This symbiotic nature of life and labour becomes the focus of the work. By looking at these notions both naturally and spiritually, she has created work that the viewer can envelop themselves in, even just through sight.  The viewer’s body and interaction becomes a part of the medium.
