Land Art Artist Jody Joyner from Tucson, Arizona, has just finished works on a giant nest (woven of hibiscus twigs) at Soekershof; Private Mazes & Botanical Gardens in South Africa in Robertson, Western Cape. She was inspired by the numerous weaver bird nests in the old stretch of the Klaas Voogds River which runs through the gardens.
Joyner is on a global tour for several months. Before commencing her job at Soekershof two months ago she was involved in Landartgenerator in Dubai and a project in the Louvre in Paris. From South Africa she will first fly to Australia to be involved in a project with aboriginals and from there she will create an object with Inuit in the North of Canada. Her assignment in South Africa was part of Land Art project in South Africa; an initiative of Soekershof. This project is a pure private initiative without (governmental) grants and/or subsidies.
