Solo Exhibition ‘Whispers from the Lily pond’ by Shany van den Berg at Everard Read Franschhoek

Everard Read Franschhoek
20 Huguenot Road, Franschhoek
WHISPERS FROM THE LILY POND by Shany van den Berg
27 October – 19 November

This exhibition ‘Whispers from the Lily pond / Fluisteringe vanaf n Lelie poel ‘ is the first platform for a series, that reflects on rebirth through water, water spirits, and Nymphaea (water lilies).

The body of works is mapped, woven, stitched and dressed to awaken the Nymphaea from a deep hibernation to play and dance with the water deities.

“My memories of water and lilies (from childhood to present day) drove my practice conceptually as I found myself spending days in the Stellenbosch Botanical Gardens. This initiated painterly and drawing based experiments and research – in essence it served to manifest my lilies and water spirit through documenting my thoughts as they are mirrored back to me on the watery reflections.” – Shany van den Berg.

This exhibition will be opened with a performance by the artist.

Please join us for the opening of “Whispers from the Lily Pond” at 11h00 at Everard Read Franschhoek.

Gallery hours: 9:30 – 17:30

Entry: Complimentary
