‘Nature is Louder’ is a project focused on 2D Street Art in Makhanda.
With the provocation “Nature is always louder” we invite 4 street artists to Makhanda for a 2-week period of listening and making. This will start mid-June and be completed during the Live National Arts Festival 2021.
The sites are at first walls; however, we consider the wall, the surrounding environment, the living and non-living in the environment, the memory, the promises, the subjective and intimate experiences of the artist, all as part of the site the artists are invited to work in. The site then is alive and full and the artist brings themselves into this as another layer.
Each artist is on their own site, but each artists’ process is understood as in conversation with each other. Simultaneous growing, renewing, discarding.
