#FREESPACE INSTALLATION

This Was Taken From the Free Space Website. For the original Click here

Zeitz MOCAA and V&A Waterfront Silo District, Cape Town, South Africa

The container installation allows contestations and different spatial realities to come to the fore. The sculptural intervention provokes the multi-layered question of transformation and resilience as a defining aspect of urbanisation in the contemporary African city.

Industrial containers or vessels of mass commoditisation have been used and inventively repurposed for a wide range of uses, and adapted for places of human production, retail, pleasure, and habitation.

The #FREESPACE installation acts as a symbolic bridging point between people and their perspectives on space. Everyone is invited to engage in an immersive experience, reflecting the open #FREESPACE debate. Artist interventions invite public exchange, creating an active space rich in meaning and contestation.

As an ‘ark of knowledge‘, the container will be hung in public space, as a symbolic vessel that conveys memory through the act of migration and change. An allegory to the notion of a transient and adaptive shelter, it represents a lens through which collectively South Africans can reflect and find resonance around the notion or ideal of ‘the diverse nation’.
