Hannelie Coetzee will direct 'Locust and Grasshopper', the second Art/Science #FireGrazer performance on 24 June 2017 at the NIROX Sculpture Park, in partnership with University of the Witwatersrand scientists Sally Archibald (Ecologist) and James Harrison (Entomologist), Working on Fire, NIROX Sculpture Park, Lizamore & Associates and 5D Surveys.
This performance entails the live burning of new imagery onto the grasslands, using art as a tool to communicate complex systems and build awareness of pressing ecological issues.
The audience will join Coetzee on a 6km hike to view the #Firegrazer performance followed by an exclusive small solo exhibition at the NIROX Sculpture park pavilion, curated by Lizamore & Associates.
The hike will pass some world-famous artworks, and allow the audience to experience the beauty of the Highveld grassland. This performance also grants the audience access to the beautiful NIROX Reserve.
