The annual Art Issue is one of the House and Leisure team’s favourites – we get to take you along with us as we explore homes owned by artists and art lovers, as well as cover some of the latest developments in the art world. In short, the art issue presents a summary of what we think is HERE / NOW in contemporary art. This year, we discovered an art-filled homestead in Limpopo (p70), persuaded artist and curator Karel Nel to show us around his house in Johannesburg (p78), and managed to get star photographer Trevor Stuurman to pose for a portrait and reveal his new home to us (p38).

high rise

A new Insta-worthy addition to New York City’s skyline made its appearance this June. Far from being another starchitect building of dazzling proportions, this newbie is a bronze sculpture that’s been cleverly positioned to form part of the surrounding cityscape. ‘Brick House’ by US-based architect Simone Leigh is a 5m-high bust that is part of a rotating commission of public art on the city’s High Line, a picturesque walkway that’s been created on a former overhead railway line.

Plinths are not new to the world of art, where they’ve been used for centuries, appearing as heavy bases or boxes…
