AFRIKA BURN 2014
Standing watch over the Binnekring was this year’s Clan – a manifestation of the theme The Trickster – a giant mechanic hare. The crew’s rationale for the piece describe it as: “A synthesis of opposites: the duality of nature/technology; light/dark; male/female; life/death. The arm is raised in honor of Nelson Mandela. Rolihlahla: the troublemaker, the visionary. Robotic logic can compete with traditional values. Technology seduces ancestral wisdoms. By virtue of lessons, often convoluted, sometimes contradictory, it reminds us that we cannot shirk the spirit”.
