SA CONTRIBUTION (article first published : 2002-07-21)

Mari-Mira, the evolving and poetical village initiated by Guy-André Lagesse and on show at the Pavilion Site during July, is now enriched with new South African contributions made by local artists.

These include Pat Khanye, Jabulani Mhlabini, Sbusiso Mbele and Rafs Mayet. Together they have constructed The Talking House, a community centre using pallets as walls and “pompom” curtains made out of plastic bags.

Wherever the exhibition goes now, the visitors can celebrate birthdays or weddings around the party table with its lush and colorful tablecloth woven with plastic bags. They can also sing to activate the flowered ceiling sound and light system. Outside the "fountain of knowledge" with its human tea pots and cups will acknowledge their presence.

The exhibition remains open until July 31 from Tuesday to Sunday 12h00 to 19h00. Entry is free. The venue is the Military Museum on North Beach, corner Pavilion Terrace-Snell Parade (next to the Skate Park).
