2013 Site_Specific Land Art Biennale

The Site_Specific Land Art Biennale is an event that will take place in Plettenberg Bay and surrounds during the week of 10 - 17 August 2013. As artists are working on setting up various ephemeral land art installations, visitors and locals will be able to observe their progress and attend public lectures and performances. You can also register and participate in Site_Specific's Public Programmes!

More than 40 local and international artists, including Cornelia Konrads from Germany, Won-Gil Jeon from Korea and Strijdom van der Merwe from Stellenbosch, will create temporary art works from natural materials during this week. The Biennale is hosted by Site_Specific, a not-for-profit association which aims to raise public awareness of environmental issues through their work. The event gives prominent artists the opportunity to produce works inspired by the natural surroundings and involves the public via an extensive education programme, calligraphy workshop and ecological land art walk from Nature’s Valley to Keurboomstrand.
