CONSTITUTION HILL FLAME OF DEMOCRACY

HILLBROW, JOHANNESBURG

In collaboration with: The Library

2010

The 16th of December 2011 marked the 15th anniversary of the signing of South Africa’s new constitution.  To commemorate this auspicious occasion, a Flame of Democracy was implemented. The installation is housed at the threshold of the historic Awaiting Trial Tower along its east-west axis to the Constitutional Court entrance – this siting directly references the South African journey toward democracy. Comprising of an eternal flame and column of light - visible throughout the city - their symbolism stands in stark contrast to the doorway of the towers through which prisoners once passed.
