A sculpture installation by Sybrand Wiechers & Izanne Wiid
10 June 2016 to 29 June 2016
Izanne Wiid and Sybrand Wiechers are two Pretoria sculptors who combine their talents to bring a sculpture installation to the closed space of the Black Box gallery of the Art Association Pretoria. The works of both these artists have met with much recognition and appreciation in the past couple of years.
Izanne’s collars evoke human enslavement whether self-imposed or by the community’s subjection and disempowerment. Sybrand’s floating vehicle is a metaphor of the cage outside or within ourselves with the liberating message that being simply human is sufficient to escape from that cage. With this installation viewers are enjoined to have regard to their own cages of enslavement and powerlessness.
The exhibition will be opened by Avi Sooful on Friday 10 June 2016 at 18h30 for 19h00 and runs until Wednesday 29 June 2016.
