SCULPTURE PARK

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 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.
CURRENT EXHIBITION
The 'Margins of Error' Winter Sculpture Exhibition consists of new sculptures, installations & performances from South Korea, Morocco & South Africa, produced as part of KOFICE's Traveling Korean Arts' project.

"We live in silos. This benighted and shrunken view is an unjust answer to our global woes, a reactionary attempt to override the productive conflicts which every country at this historical moment is experiencing. Isolationism is not a solution but a symptom of a crisis.

 

In 2021, at the Nirox Foundation ... we see the manifestation of a global counter-intuitive project. Pitted against perversity, in search of tomorrow’s health today, the project brings together artists from South Korea, Morocco, and South Africa, in a joint attempt to confound the bitterness latent in a reactionary desire to destroy compassion, arrest human movement, and defy growth.

 

The artist’s stance is vital. What it advocates is openness, connection, understanding, and, all-importantly, a critically reflexive individuality."

On 20th December 2020 NIROX inaugurated 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 hosts a program for solo artists, installations, and performances.
