Bank Windhoek turns branch into art mini-documentary
By Martha Nangombe
In a firm commitment to cultivating Namibia’s arts and culture scene, Bank Windhoek has collaborated with The Project Room to transform its Maerua Mall Branch into an ex-quisite art exhibition. The move shows the bank’s continued support towards the development of the arts and cul- ture in the country. As part of the exhibition, Bank Windhoek produced a four-min- ute documentary titled ‘Art in the Branch’, which features one of the artists, Alpheus Mvula, Project Room’s two owners, Frie- da Lühl and Laschandre Coetzee, a creative director with extensive experience in design thinking. Mvula is a well-known sculp- tor, art lecturer and printmaker who has travelled the world and exhibited in Germany, Sweden, and Finland.
He pointed out that he enjoys it when people recognise his work since it is on show in the branch, which motivates him to do more.
Lühl and Coetzee both men- tioned the necessity of giving artists a platform and a place to exhibit their work.
