Spier Light Art presents the 3rd edition of this spectacle of light and interactive artwork, showcasing sound and video art installations at Spier Wine Farm.
Curated by Jay Pather and Vaughn Sadie, the event is open to the public and features various aesthetic devices and themes. Each piece is inspired by Spier’s Growing for Good initiatives, empowering communities to create positive social and environmental change.
The installations are spaciously distanced from each other, allowing for safe participation. The artworks include Lume (Egbert Westra), inviting visitors to create phosphorescent images with flashlights on their cell phones, alongside Lucy, a light painting robot.
The Singing Tree (The Willow Collective), combines light, music and technology with motion design. The artwork reacts to the participant’s movement, changing its music and lighting according to their position in the tree.
Umdiydiya (Wezile Mgibe) is a video production that reflects on past experience in contrasting spaces, celebrating the connection between people. How Do You Mourn? (Georgia Munnik) features colourful sculptures, inviting viewers to reflect on the impact of climate change.
Spier Wine farm offers food and drink offerings that include sunset picnics (Dineplan bookings). Guests can enjoy an array of cuisine from the main restaurant, Spier Farm Cafe and Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery. The various pop-ups also include a Wine Truck.
The event is free, in addition to timed slots (booked online).
