Site_Specific's co-founder and international biennale curator, Strijdom van der Merwe, has visited and worked on the site on several trips. This time around he came to make his own interventions around the Snake Eagle Thinking Path.

A site intervention by katty vandenberghe commemorating all the genocides and atrocities that took place across the African continent due to slavery, colonialism, and apartheid. Southern Africa has experienced some of the worst atrocities, like the British Anglo-Boer war concentration camps, the Namibian Herero and Nama genocides, Germany's first Namibian extermination camps, and an apartheid system we are still wrestling with. This intervention represents a series of disintegrating skulls.

Intervention (dragon) by Western Cape Land Art co-founder Janet Ranson. Janet used turn of the 20th century glass fragments found on site. The Snake Eagle Thinking Path is on a heritage site. This means that artists are not allowed to remove materials from site, but by invitation they are allowed to use the material for interventions that are not destructive, invasive, and complement the characteristics of the site.  katty vandenberghe
