    Fanning the Fire, 1988

    Wood, tin, nails

    14'6" x 5' x 5'

    Fanning the Fire is an accumulative piece against apartheid. Visitors to the Park are invited to contribute to the piece by adding various metal objects and nails they bring or find at the Park, as offerings against apartheid. A hammer and nails are provided behind the sculpture. The sculpture will continue to receive offerings throughout the time the piece is installed in the Park, and will gradually acquire a dense, encrusted surface of objects, found refuse, and nails.
