Hannelie
Coetzee

Coetzee is a Johannesburg-based visual artist and professional photographer. She has worked as a photographer for more than 15 years.

She juggles social documentary photography, visual arts, and collaborative art projects as she feels the one feeds the other.Photographing social development projects keeps her close to the pulse of Southern Africa. This inspires her to create her land art/sculpture but also return to the communities to invest in them through Such Initiative and other collaborative interventions. The travel keeps her close to the landscape and the celebrations/scars we inflict upon our land.

Coetzee specializes in social documentary photography and has worked alongside NGO’s and corporate companies capture their social investment and development projects in a reportage style.Her most recent works are made out of discarded/processed stone. As well as various site specific works around South Africa (Site_Specific 2011, ITC 2011), Coetzee has done several works in Johannesburg to reconnect with her roots in the city. A large commissioned work made of mining core, “The Change Agent”, was unveiled in February 2012 in The Maboneng Precinct on the facade of a new building, The Main Change.
