Karen Rutter, Editor-in-Chief of www.weekendspecial.co.za interviews multidisciplinary artist Thania Petersen.
A riot of colourful books line the walls, bright art materials cover a swath of trestle tables, and Grace Jones is singing My Jamaican Guy in the background.
In the foreground, multidisciplinary artist Thania Petersen, in a funky red-patterned coat and hot yellow scarf, is busy editing images on her computer and keeping an eye on her WhatsApp messages. It feels like being in someone’s lounge – comfy and welcoming. Except this lounge is also filled with something else – potential and possibility.
