Spier Light Art 2019 - 2020
6 December 2019
The popular annual Spier Light Art will be presented again from 6 December 2019 to 19 January 2020. Each night, visitors will experience an array of light and sound artworks throughout this historic Stellenbosch farm.
The opening ceremony will be held on two nights – on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 December 2019 – when the audience will be invited to join a procession across a multi-sensory, cross-cultural wonderland featuring dancers, stilt walkers and other illuminating enchantments. Tickets for the opening night start at R200 per person including a glass of Spier Signature wine and is available on www.webtickets.co.za.
From 8 December 2019 to 19 January 2020, Spier Light Art will be freely accessible to the public. The best time to visit is at dusk, when you can catch both the beautiful sunset and the switching on of the lights. Be sure to book a dinner or picnic in advance.
• Lyall Sprong’s Bergson’s Misting Circle – a 4 metre vertical circle of light and mist
• Goldendean’s Breathe Goldendean – an interactive inflatable sculpture that allows you to lie on it whilst it gently glows and breathes around you
• David Brits’s massive 70 metre glowing shape, suspended high in one of the oldest oaks living on the Spier Werf (farmyard)
• Themba Stewart and Qondiswa James’s astute and profound Keep the Lights On, which reminds us that light in the everyday is a sociopolitical issue that cannot be taken for granted
