South African artist Willem Boshoff lived like a druid for much of his life and presents his experiences in person as BIG DRUID. BIG DRUID resides in a custom made cubicle where he battles with shadows, aesthetic constructs and words. He occupies the cubicle throughout the art fair. His irregular sleeping pattern dictates that he sleeps and meditates at unforeseen times of the day or night. He only leaves his cubicle for meals, ablutions and solitary druidic walks in the mornings or afternoons. BIG DRUID works on computer, writing druidic dictionaries, plotting philosophical strategies and documenting his experiences and large collection of diviners’ articles. The cubicle has an area of retreat and contains the divination collection. It is also fitted with exhibition shelves and a work area where BIG DRUID makes and shows artworks and thought processes that reflect on the outcome of his extravagant druidic insights and multivagant itinerary.
