Woordfees 2013 | HIERNAMAALS • HEREAFTER
01 - 03 March 2013, Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil III
Sasol Museum tree installation & Slee Gallery Exhibition
Anni Snyman, PC Janse van Rensburg, Andrew van der Merwe & friends will be setting up another 'Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil' installation at this year's Woordfees festival in Stellenbosch as part of the 'HIERNAMAALS • HEREAFTER' exhibition taking place at the Slee Gallery.
This year's water installation is symbolic of tears, whilst drawing attention to the vital nature of water as the MATRIX of life. Mankind's reckless treatment of water through processes such as fracking, amongst many others, is threatening the future sustainability of our land and it's natural water resources.
The installation extends the symbolism of 2012's apple installation that drew attention to the abuse of the feminine, to include our culture's destruction of the natural, our land base, mother earth - the life force itself.
The 2013 installation will start on Friday 1 March, continuing through the nights to hang approximately two thousand bags of water by sunrise on Sunday 3 March. Andrew van der Merwe, a famous South African sand calligrapher, will complete the artwork with a design around the base of the tree. At 15hoo on the 3rd, a performance will offer the water back to the tree that has so patiently carried our installation.
