A portrait of Nelson Mandela by photographer Anton Corbijn and visual artist Berend Strik is shown in the restaurant of Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy for the celebration of Freedom Day, Saturday 27 April.
Corbijn photographed Mandela in Cape Town in 2003, and Berend Strik added stitchwork to it in 2011. It is the first time the two artists worked in partnership. Strik: 'The opportunity to merge my way of working with that of Corbijn is unique since our two worlds give room to the spaciousness of the South African landscape'.
Freedom Day celebrates the first post-Apartheid elections of 1994.
