Hannelie Coetzee's Biography

Hannelie Coetzee is a Johannesburg-based visual artist and professional photographer, who combines land art, social documentary photography and collaborative art projects (with Such Initiative) as she fuels the one and feeds the other.

Photographing social development projects keeps her close to the pulse of South Africa, as it inspires her to create her land art/sculpture but also return to the communities to invest in them through Such Initiative. The travel keeps her close to the landscape and the scars we inflict upon our land. Collecting, rearranging and documenting stone out of place has become a theme in her work for the past 10 years.
