Three-artist land Art session in Riebeeck Kasteel

Three artists - Stefanie Schoeman, Loni Dräger and Janet Botes - met up in Riebeeck Kasteel to respond to the landscape in a creative and respectful way. The site was chosen by Loni, a local resident artist, and overlooks the beautiful Cederberg Mountains to the North.

The dried seedpods from the vine-like plant that were used (which is not an indigenous species), produces a rattling sound when the wind shakes them against each other - this being the inspiration behind the strung vine rope between two singular trees that grow right next to the area where the plants grow. 

The location was chosen so the seeds of the plant are not spread even further onto the mountain side by the artists. This creative meeting is planned to be the first of similar meetups in the landscape of the Western Cape. 

An additional collaborative piece created in conversation between Stefanie Schoeman and Janet Botes:
