Please note: You are about to enter the cosmos of Mirage. A sensual exploration of a feeling, maybe an attitude, embedded in paper and created by the German Graphic Designer and Art Director Frank Rocholl who happened to stand in front of the Kloofhill house, Cape Town. Its owner, South African Filmmaker and Photographer Henrik Purienne, remembers: „Eye for detail for sure. Casual chat. Common interests.“ That was that. What followed were four issues of Mirage (2009-2014), JamaisVu. Mirage Anthology. (2016), a side project by Purienne Jeux de Peaux (2019) all filled with vast horizons, deep blue seawater, endless Summer pool-side days, beautiful women, fast vintage cars, timeless design classics…Sounds too cliche? Well, we agree. But though, Mirage is filled with outwardly alluring phenomena it does prove that beautiful and glossy doesn't equal superficiality.

Already the ruling class of the Victorian era was well aware of the priceless potential of the narrow strip where the land ends and merges into the sea.

The new Dummy is all about feelings: A sense of the needs of others, the perception of injustice and the admission of compassion are the foundations for a society in which the weak do not become even weaker in times of crisis. What is needed, apart from a rethink on the part of the state, is more empathy from each individual. Empathy, which many people are more likely to allow in the cinema than in real life. ⁠As always it comes in German, sorry. But we guess that makes Dummy is one of the good reasons to pick up German lessons...
