Goal Post
Jane Makhubele, in the Limpopo Province selected an image from the newspaper of Xavi from Spain about to score a goal. She created an artwork from this image in brightly coloured beads on cloth. Susan Woolf documented the Taxi Hand signs which were used to transport
visitors to the World Cup around the country to watch the games. Her images were selected by the Post office for the official set of 10 South African commemorative stamps in 2010, for both sighted and blind people.

Curator Natalie Knight commissioned Woolf to incorporate these two images into a special print to commemorate the exhibition she organised in June and July entitled Football and Africa. Knight co-published the print in a limited edition series with Woolf. Entitled Goal-Post, the work incorporates the excitement, the movement, the energy, the uncertainty and the drama which has held and united South Africans throughout the country. Remember it? – it was here.

The three women know nothing about Football but have they instinctively chosen the winner as Spain enters the semi-finals?

“Whether Spain wins or loses the football we based our selection on artistic criteria’,
said Natalie Knight .
‘ We want to donate a copy of the print to the Spanish team in recognition of their hot blooded sporting prowess and hope that they will enjoy this tangible record of their time in South Africa – from the women.’ For further information see www.knightgalleries.net
