Moataz Nasr — 'Sunboat' (2019)
NIROX Sculpture Park is 30ha of cultivated lawns, arbors, fields, waterways, and wetlands, on the banks of the Blaauwbankspruit River adjoining the Kkatlhamphi Private Nature Reserve — a 1000ha wilderness of hills, valleys, riverine forests, caves, and highveld grasslands, populated with diverse local game and birdlife.
 
The Park is open to the public on weekends and public holidays, or by special arrangements during the week.
The Park hosts more than 50 permanent and long-term installations by artists from across the globe; and at least one annual large scale curated exhibition of new and temporary installations and performances, in collaboration with NIROX’ wide circle of global partners and curatorial affiliations.
THE COVERED SPACE
In November 2020 NIROX inaugurates its newly covered exhibition space with a solo installation by Nicholas Hlobo.
 
The Covered Space is a generous rammed earth structure continuing the upskilling of local communities in the craft of building with the earth which began with the construction of the Columba Leadership Residency at NIROX in 2018.
The Covered Space will host a program for solo artists, installations, and performances.
EXHIBITIONS
The Sculpture Park regularly hosts independently curated exhibitions.
