Celebrating 20 Years of Freedom with Design
Infestation in collaboration with Tsai Design Studio have been selected as a top sixteen finalist for the Public Art Competition launched by the Western Cape Government. The artwork will be installed on the newly established plaza, corner of Dorp and Long streets, within the WCG precinct.
To mark the 20 year anniversary of living in democratic South Africa, the Western Cape Government (WCG) launched this competition for an exceptional, permanent artwork that embodies, celebrates and reminds us of the 20 years of Freedom in our City and in our Country.
The concept of our work is rooted in the memory of the first democratic elections and the journey of casting our vote. Visuals of long winding queues and the symbolism of broken shackles is combined in a seemingly weightless column with a curved bench that offer seating on the plaza.
Visitors are welcomed into the space to reflect on their own journey and experience since 1994.
