Site_Specific LAND ART 2013

Join us! Viewing of Land Art is free!

This year’s Site_Specific International Land Art Biennale (every two years) will take place 10 - 17 August 2013 on the beaches of Plettenberg Bay

Launch Event

On Sunday 11 August, Strijdom van der Merwe’s permanent work in the Eden to Addo Land Art Route will be unveiled. The work “Calling the Herd” is a lovely interactive piece that symbolically calls the last remaining wild elephants in the Eden forest to once again tread the ancient migration routes and join their family in the Addo National Park. Everyone is welcome to join us at 10:30 at the intersection of the R339 and the R340 where the work will be unveiled, and then to travel with us to Aartmoeders (the stone art work) at Kranshoek. The Kranshoek Griqua community will be laying on a traditional basaar with food and music. Come and enjoy a special day with the invited artists from Korea, Germany and South Africa!
