Art South Africa - News Features - The nation celebrates Madiba's legacy

Art South Africa - News Features - The nation celebrates Madiba's legacy | Form 5 Art Syllabus | Scoop.it
On 18 July 2013, the international community will unite in celebration of the life one of the legendary icons of our time, former President Nelson Mandela. The day marks Madiba's 95rd birthday [...]
Art's insight:

Look specifically at how all the organic shapes on the vertical uprights combine with the negative spaces to create the Mandela image. Every line and space is essential to the success of this image as it emerges at one particular angle. Note: It is MONUMENTAL in size metaphorically representing the greatness of Mandela's achievements and the sheer magnitude of the man. The steel bars are reminiscent of the bars that imprisoned him. The STEEL material is strong, durable, will endure Nature's elements of wind and rain echoeing the strength that Madiba showed in his fight against apartheid and fight for Human rights and freedom. Note how the LIGHT shimmers across the vertical bars significant too, of the light he brought into a dark time of apartheid. The light also plays over the steel verticals highlighting the fragility of the organic, ragged shapes on the line metaphorical too for Mandela's vulnerability as a human being as the state of repression intensified. It is significant that this sculpture is situated at the  capture site as while viewing the sculpture we ponder what it must've been like to be arrested and imprisoned. Significant too is the fact that the landscape is always changing and thus the sculpture is never the same, always viewed differently and offering a unique experience for each and every viewer. Conceptual work of this nature is intended to evoke different thoughts and emotions in each individual. It is art that is highly relevant to society in its everyday context as well as its historical significance.  (by Jean Christodoulou)
