18 August 2011
The “Swallows in flight” project was commissioned by Laurence Graff for the interior of the Indochine restaurant on the Delaire Graff Estate, Stellenbosch.
The complete artwork weighs an approximate 720kg and has an external diameter of 8 meters on the main supporting structure. There are 800 swallows in the composition comprising of seven different colours of Perspex arranged in descending tonal values. The design of the swallows installation was developed over a three month period and the artwork itself took another three months to produce with the assistance of numerous technicians.
