This exhibition ‘Whispers from the Lilypond / 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
