A former commercial trout breeding and fishing farm has been transformed with the assistance of landscape designer Patrick Watson and landscape contractor Wesley de Wit into a unique platform for the exhibition of outdoor sculptures and installations.
Existing buildings have been renovated and new pavilions have been built with the assistance of architect Johan Bergentuin.
The sculpture park provides a unique platform for artists to realize and exhibit outdoor sculpture and installations; and for collectors and the public to enjoy these in nature. Exhibitions may be selling or non-selling, depending on the circumstances.

For its 2017 annual winter sculpture exhibition, NIROX turns to curators selected by 6 South African universities to express their own insights – 6 separate curated subjects addressed by more than 50 alumni artists, who experienced their adulthood after the fall of apartheid – with its promises, hopes and challenges.
Historically the vanguard of change, universities and their relations with society could not be more relevant or center stage than they are today.
