Atrium Commission - On at Norval Foundation
Courtesy of the Claire & Edoardo Villa Will Trust
Forced migration is central to Serge Alain Nitegeka’s Structural Response III . The theme of disrupted lives, disrupted work and disrupted spaces is, through his intervention within the Atrium, intended to enable a discussion about displacement. His use of simple building materials such as pre-cut timber, references the aesthetics of temporary structures that forced migrants often construct

Visit the Sculpture Garden at Norval Foundation
The Sculpture Garden at Norval Foundation features three-dimensional and installation-based artworks by artists from South Africa and Africa. The unique site, bisected by a protected Cape Lowland Freshwater Wetland and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Western Cape, features flora that are indigenous to the area.
The placement of artwork takes the site into consideration, using the contours of the garden to hide and reveal work, creating an experience of discovery for the viewer. The building has been designed so that the Western side gives way onto the Sculpture Garden at multiple points, allowing visitors access from the galleries, building connections between exhibitions taking place both inside and outside.
Labour of Many - Exhibition by Ibrahim Mahama on at Norval Foundation
Labour of Many: Ibrahim Mahama
13 February – 11 August 2019
Norval Foundation is delighted to announce a major installation by Ibrahim Mahama, the first of its kind in South Africa. Mahama’s rigorous, socially engaged and process based practice, brings to the fore Africa’s role in the global exchange of commodities while considering the movement of its people and how labour is valued. For the installation at Norval Foundation, Mahama intervenes in the Foundation’s largest gallery, at nine metres high, covering the surfaces with hessian sacks, contrasting the humility of the materials with the monumentality of the space.
