Ikstingkt

Started January 2012. Next exhibition is in September 2014.

IKSTINGKT began as a large-scale public artwork using a CRASH of larger-than-life Rhinos. The aim was to provoke thought and action to find solutions using the current poaching issue and threat to the Rhinoceros as THE VOICE for beasts, birds, fish and conservation alike. The title and work create a sense of disturbing awe, as the viewer is forced to come to terms with both the magnificence and fragility of life.

Our life-size Rhinos and product Rhinos continue to raise awareness amongst the public.

Nix Davies

"Through the mystery of navigating the unknown we are able to wondrously unravel our hearts to expose their true nature.“

Nix Davies is a collaborative, conceptual artist that explores possibilities that arise from consciously stepping into and existing in the unknown. She creates and produces large-scale experiential spaces, events and artworks that ordinarily are impossible to create alone. Nix initiates, instigates and ignites concepts by establishing a platform that require others to step up, risk, interact and belong to the process alongside her. This requires Nix to co-create; manage individuals and groups; and produce an over all piece of work by consciously making or facilitating a series of choices of best possible solutions for specific moments.

Nix often embarks on ‘life installations’ that showcase the emerging and developing of concepts along an ordinarily unknown journey. It is while living and navigating these spaces that she breathes ideas to life.

  • Nix Davies is the founder of The School Of Innovation.
  • Nix ran a collaborative, changing, working space called Let There Be Light in Woodstock for four years at the Woodstock Industrial Centre and Side Street Studios.
  • Nix has recently moved to a farm outside Citrusdal in the Western Cape where she has created Howl from Your Heart and the Hexagon Ceremonial Space.
