Working with Angus Taylor

Since its establishment in 1996, DSW has worked alongside South African sculptor, Angus Taylor. The Sotho saying “Motho ke motho ka batho babang” meaning “a person is a person because of other people” holds special meaning at DSW, as each project is approached as a collaborative venture, where ideas are brought into existence under Angus’ guidance and the help of the studio and foundry.

The DSW team is not only actively involved in the casting, finishing and installation of Taylor’s private commissions, but also assist with his solo exhibitions that take place biannually. Furthermore, DSW assists Taylor with the development, making and installation of site-specific artworks, as well as in-situ construction of large scale public artworks, such as Dionysus at the Tokara Wine Estate in Stellenbosch (2017), Homage to Hermes at the Apple Mac Head Office in Sandton (2007) and Holderstebolder at the Norval Foundation Museum in Cape Town (2018).
