Launch Event / 23 May 2013

Site_Specific officially launched it's 2013 International Land Art Biennale at the Circa Gallery in Johannesburg. The Circa Gallery is one of Site_Specific's official sponsors, and we extend our gratitude to their hospitality and support.

Invited Artists

Site_Specific's second International Land Art Biennale is proud to welcome an impressive list of international, national, and local artists to our second event.

Selected_SIDES Artists

Due to popular demand, Site_Specific also opened up the land art event to artists wishing to participate at their own cost. The Selected_SIDES Artists programme was designed to accommodate this demand. As an non-profit organisation Site_Specific relies heavily on volunteers and funding to support travel and accommodation costs for invited artists, so we are grateful and pleased to those artists who join us in this all-important event.

Opening event: Calling the Herd

11th August 2013 at 10h30
R339 & R340 crossroads, Prince Alfred Pass
Eden to Addo Land Art Route

This exciting interactive land art work by Strijdom van der Merwe in the Keurbooms Corridor consists of several trumpet-like funnels combined in a tree shape. Visitors can blow these trumpets - recalling the sounds of elephants on their ancient migration route across the mountains. Symbolically this art work relates to the three elephant sculptures of Aartmoeders - calling them (and all humans that can hear the call)  to join in the Eden to Addo journey towards re-establishing nature's ancient routes for all species.
