During the summer months of 2012, works by around thirty South African artists were on display in several locations in and around The Hague, the Netherlands.
The exhibition was titled: The Rainbow Nation: Contemporary sculpture from South Africa and displays the colourfulness and variety of forms of contemporary art in South Africa.
The exhibition was organised by the Foundation Den Haag Sculptuur and they worked closely with Museum Beelden aan Zee. All sculptures had to be shipped from Africa and installed in the museum and outdoors. Due to their weight and size, the sculptures couldn’t travel by plane, and had to go by sea. Installing was in some cases rather complicated.
For returning the sculptures to Africa, it was necessary to consolidate all objects in our storage in order to make it possible to load the right sculptures in the proper container for their destination. Some of the sculptures were sent to other destinations.
