The latest sculpture exhibitions to go on display at the renowned Nirox Sculpture Park in the Cradle of Humankind are international in scope and deal with the ever-present and moving notions of separation and longing. Together the three exhibitions bring 18 new works to the park, on display throughout the winter.

Headlining the three exhibitions is The Real DMZ Project from South Korea. An ongoing art project that began in 2012, it expresses the deep sense of longing for unification and an end to the complete separation of the two Koreas that is most strongly felt in the DMZ or De-Militarised Zone which forms the border between the two countries. With the help of the South Korean embassy the Korean artists (who were it not for Covid had planned to come for a residency in South Africa) sent their sculpture designs to South Africa and the pieces were created here, with the artists providing direction via online meetings.

Also on show is That Hidden Thread, a sculpture exhibition combining works by South African and Moroccan artists that looks at the connections between north and south Africa and the many borders that divide the continent. 

And finally completing the picture, curated under the Margins of Error exhibition, are new works by major contemporary South African artists such as Chris Soal, known for his use toothpicks and bottle tops, and Mary Sibande who has created in the park a new series of characters, the sculptures of whom will gradually degrade over time.
