Strijdom van der Merwe is an acclaimed land artist. He makes use of natural materials provided by his chosen sites.
Using the natural surrounding world – sand, water, wood and rocks – Strijdom van der Merwe shapes the material into geometric forms that change continually until their unavoidable destruction. All that remains – of these forms – is Strijdom van der Merwe’s photographic image.
Strijdom van der Merwe – whose work is presently included in the latest IS Art exhibition – is giving a talk about his Land Art Projects at Le Quartier Français. This talk will take place in the Le Quartier Français Screening Room on Thursday the 12th of August 2010 at 18h30.
To book call Alisha on 021 876 8443.
