Hello Cape Town Magazine article: A GALLERY IN THE WOODS

The Afrikaans Taalmonument, situated on Paarl Rock and visible from the N1 just added a new daily experience that yet again, combines its unprecedented location with the roll of preserving and tutoring about this native language.


Our Green Gallery poets speak their minds

“But a garden, the oldest sign of man’s quest for ordered beauty, a garden of poems, such as pressed flowers in an old book, how we rest there on a rock, a marshy trunk, a hidden violet winking!” This is how Philip Janse van Rensburg responds to the latest poetry exhibition in the Taalmonument’s open-air gallery. In addition, LitNet conducted interviews with most of the poets, which can be read here. But the best option is to visit the beautiful monument and Green Gallery itself.
