Take a cultured walk
in Kirstenbosch gardens
Kirstenbosch Gardens is ideally suited to the display of various forms of art. From the summer concerts to art exhibitions to Greek theatre For the next 12 months the untamed exhibition is well worth a visit for the whole family. I wandered in there by accident and ended up spending a whole afternoon. The writings expecially “speak” to me. But the living wall is impressive and the sculptures dramatic. If you have a free afternoon in Cape Town, I highly recommend a vist to the gardens in general, but make sure you take time to visit this outstanding exhibition while you are there.
Untamed, is a collaberative display including sculpture, architecture and poetry. Its aim is to “explore the lost balance between humankind and nature” The exhibition inludes sculptures by Dylan Lewis. These explore the wild nature of within and without us. The poems and writings on display are by Ian McCallum, and explore humans unconcious connection with nature and the natural world. These writings and sculptures are housed in a temporary structure with includes a living wall, or vertical garden concept, in which indigenous plants held in recycled plastic containers are held in a steel vertical frame.
