Watermense/Water people installation by Hannelie Coetzee.

Lizamore & Associates is presenting a special solo project; Watermense/Water people installation by Hannelie Coetzee at the Turbine Art Fair 2017.

An installation of recycled doors are being exhibited at the Turbine Art Fair are remnants of Coetzee’s various activations around the flow of natural water springs throughout the city. The figures Coetzee chose to timeously engrave on these found-doors are people the artist met and interacted with on hikes along the natural streams crisscrossing Johannesburg. Through recycling discarded doors from regenerated buildings in Johannesburg, Coetzee aims to urge viewers to rethink how mankind will live with limited natural resources well into the future.

During this year’s Turbine Art Fair, Coetzee will host a walkabout in Johannesburg CBD. This walkabout allows viewers to engage with public art in the city; walkers will see Oumagrootjie 2010 in Fordsburg and a Watermense 2016 intervention at Mad Giant, amongst others. Join Coetzee on 15 July 2017 at 13h30 for this experience. Walkabout will start at the Watermense/Water people installation (at the fair) and entails a 6km round trip on foot Johannesburg CBD (2-3 hours).
