Canal Opens a Path Between Fox and Main

Canal Opens a Path Between Fox and Main – Human Intersection is a joint development initiated by Propertuity in collaboration with the City of Johannesburg. This urban thoroughfare is more than just a pathway – it is an inner city sculpture park.

Lieberman’s designs symbolise the power of events as well as the impact and influence people have on each other and their surroundings. The wire lace, the figures, and the buildings are all drawn together by cables that stretch across the Canal.

The initial set of sculptures included famous faces such as William Kentridge, Jonathan Liebmann, Mikhael Subotzky, David Krut, Given Giyani, Shruthi Nair, and Kim Lieberman herself. A second round of sculptures will feature Deone Billings, Jarlyne Joel, and Bheki Dube among nearly a dozen others. Every individual represents a progressive concept or drive, with each person taking the form of a symbolic key which unlocks the true potential of Maboneng as it continues to grow.
