Hannelie Coetzee uses natural materials the landscape offers as a medium to build site specific artworks. Her artworks are sometimes permanent, but often ephemeral. Coetzee’s work specifically aims to integrate science and art to inspire empathy for and engagement with nature.
Coetzee has worked as a photographer for more than twenty years, specializing in social documentary photography. She has worked alongside Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) as well as corporate companies to capture their social investment and development projects. She is represented by Aurora Photos in New York.
