Sarah Bartmann Centre of Remembrance

I have come to take you home
where I will sing for you,
for you have brought me peace,
for you have brought us peace.

Diana Ferrus

 

 

Parts & Labour answered a nation wide call from the Sarah Bartmann Centre of Remembrance for the design and implementation of six artworks throughout the centre, of which P&L was awarded two.

In the development of the project, P&L assembled a team of professionals including Craig McClenaghan, Helene Smuts, Churchill Madikida and Carina Comrie to assemble a curated exhibition of sculptural artworks that challenged complex identities, racial status qous, sexuality, masculinity and naming conventions within a fractured South African context through the lens of Sarah Bartmann, a young woman of ‘Khoi’ descent,  who was exploited in Europe in the 18th Century.

iMadiba Project | 2018

iMadiba Project

Conceptualised and created by Erhardt Thiel, the aim of the project was to build as many iMadiba “conversation station” sites as possible around the world. With the support of sponsors and the Nelson Mandela FoundationParts and Labour added further assistance with the documentation and installation of the project at the Apartheid Museum.

The actual installations, or micro museums, are artistic recreations of Madiba’s Robben Island Cell. The aim of the installations was to create an ever-growing web-based collage of Madiba with selfies photographed at the iMadiba micro museums around the world. Ultimately, beginning a global conversation.

The next installation will be featured at the Nelson Mandela Capture Site in 2020.

August 2007

In 2007 the JDA and the Braamfontein Improvement District commissioned Eland, a 7.5m high concrete sculpture by Clive van den Berg.

“The JDA is immensely proud to have led and delivered this important piece of public art,” says the JDA’s CEO Lael Bethlehem. “This slightly forlorn image of a majestic animal brings beauty and grandeur to a busy place. The JDA-led regeneration work in Braamfontein has transformed the area into a thriving precinct in which office; retail and residential space is in high demand, and vacant buildings are virtually non-existent”
