Izanne Wiid and Sybrand Wiechers are two Pretoria sculptors who combine their talents to bring a sculpture installation to the closed space of the Black Box gallery of the Art Association Pretoria. The works of both these artists have met with much recognition and appreciation in the past couple of years. Izanne’s collars evoke human enslavement whether self-imposed or by the community’s subjection and disempowerment. Sybrand’s floating vehicle is a metaphor of the cage outside or within ourselves with the liberating message that being simply human is sufficient to escape from that cage.
