Reviews

     Die Burger, 5 November 2001
     Die Burger, 2 June 2003
     Artthrob, June 2003: "...the work is exquisitely crafted and produced. It represents a major change of tact...
               demonstrating a remarkable agility and versatility."
- Paul Edmunds
     Mail & Guardian, 6 February 2004: " (the works) are revealed as a perfect South African articulation of culture and environment." - Chris Roper
     Art South Africa, vol. 02, issue 03, 2004 (page 67) " Aggenbach has used the symbolic language of white leisure and suburbia
               and made a piece that is both humorous and politically astute."
- Andrew Lamprecht
