Yanni van Zijl
SCULPTOR | CERAMICIST | MIXED MEDIA ARTIST
Yanni is synonymous with environmental activism through art. She creates works about humankind and our accountability for the environment. She explores the human experience and the environmental accountability between human actions and the consequential impacts that follow.
Yanni sits at the intersection between art and environmental issues through sculpture, installation, film and performance. “Sadly there is no shortage of material to make work regarding humans impact on the planet. Nature offers wonder, excitement, beauty and intellect. How can I not make work in defence of preserving what in essence is preserving us?"
