Patrick Bongoy turns trash into art in his latest exhibition, running from 12 February to 12 May at Spier.

The planet is under stress, marked by chaotic weather events and depleted resources. The situation is dire, but there is hope for a better tomorrow – as long as we have the collective will to achieve it. This is the prevailing narrative driving Patrick Bongoy’s work and his latest exhibition now on show in Spier Wine Farm's historic Old Wine Cellar.

Bongoy is giving new life to discarded materials. Rubber features prominently in his work, symbolising the direct pollution and destruction that comes from its creation, as well as the social, political and economical issues stemming from it. Technically impressive, visually engaging, Bongoy’s art invites the viewer to contemplate forgotten dreams and stolen futures – as with the wall-to-wall canvas of silhouetted children – but also to be emboldened and hopeful.

View Patrick Bongoy's exhibition from 12 February - 12 May 2024 between 09h00 and 17h00. Free entry
