Artists, Lushan Turner, Nonnie Roodt and Riaan Opperman share their experience of the Red Forest and invite you to share the journey and explore the theme of loss, dispossession, memory and absence.
“Everything leaves a mark. Every blow echoes in the forest inside. Every injustice cuts a branch...and every loss is a fallen tree. The beautiful courage of us, the hope that defines our kind, is that we go on, no matter how much life wounds us. We walk. We face the sea and the wind and the salted truth of death, and we go on” – Gregory David Roberts, The Mountain Shadow
I grew up in a forest. It's like a room. It's protected. Like a cathedral... it is a place between heaven and earth. Anselm Kiefer
