Jonah Sack

Jonah Sack (b. 1978, Johannesburg, South Africa) currently lives and works in Cape Town.

He studied at the University of the Witwatersrand, and received his MFA from the Glasgow School of Art in 2006. He has been a fellow of the Skye Foundation and the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts at the University of Cape Town. Sack states: ‘I work across a range of mediums - including painting, sculpture, video, and artist’s books - but all of these practices emerge from drawing. I’m interested in the fragility of our bodies and minds, and of the things we build, and I explore the ways that meaning emerges from that fragility.’ Sack has exhibited widely in South Africa and abroad, including recent group exhibitions at the Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria, A4 Arts Foundation in Cape Town, and the Centre for the Less Good Idea in Johannesburg. In 2017, blank projects in Cape Town presented his solo exhibition Obstruction, and in 2022 Sack exhibited According to the Model, a solo exhibition at the Gallery of the University of Stellenbosch.
