This weekend I’n exhibiting in tow places during the Tulbagh Arts Festival in Tulbagh, Western Cape, South Africa.
Manley Wine Estate:
With the theme “Broken” in mind, I picked up minerals from
different areas in the Western Cape and twigs from the Catawba vine.
The tendrils of each twig embrace their distinctive stone and
became their own narrative objects, metaphorically telling the story
of the cycle of life; the purposeful journey towards an
as-yet-unknown destination; stillness in motion; here and there;
now and then…
The Earthquake Indicator
With the slightest vibration the Iron Crystal house on the edge
will slide and likely fall off the copper plate.
In the Town Hall:
Yvonne de Wit studied Fine Art in the Netherlands and lives in South Africa since 2000.
Inspired by the Overberg mountains she collects minerals.
For this exhibition she challenged herself expressing her delicate relationship with the elements transforming these into interactive objects.
Her previous Land Art projects led her to combine minerals with Sterling Silver into unique designs.
Yvonne exhibits her ‘Down-To-Earth’ Jewellery Collection in the Town Hall.
