The Falling Garden

Titled ‘Falling Garden’ this installation was created for the 2003 Venice Biennale at the San Staë church along the Grand Canal. When you lie on the bench and look up, they described the flowers as “thinking for you.” I’d love to walk around in a world with flowers under my feet and flowers above my head.

Rock painting of San|Bushmen

Rock art is one of South Africa’s oldest artistic traditions. It was first made by the ancestors of San|Bushmen and Khoekhoen, South Africa’s first peoples, at least 30,000 years ago. This rock painting depicts San|Bushmen running between eland, a type of antelope that is spiritually important. Hunter-gatherer rock paintings such as this are understood to relate to a ritual practice named ‘the great healing’ or ‘trance dance’, which continues today in the Kalahari outside of South Africa.

See this amazing piece in our special exhibition on South Africa: the art of a nation, which tells a story stretching back 100,000 years. Exhibition runs 27 October 2016 – 26 February 2017.
