Space Refugee is a sculpture which tells the story of a father and his daugther who can travel in time and space using a huge magic lollipop while riding a big skippy ball.
It's an adventure of a survivor of torture and war who managed to turn his trauma into a superpower with the essential help of his 7-year old little girl. The story of Omar Imam is very personal, but it's also a tribute to all the fathers who are carrying their children on their backs and escape war. It's for all the survivors.
Gert Wessels created a fresh mint green modular presentation system.

These 'Fragments' are located at his Sculpture garden in Stellenbosch (South Africa). Lewis’s primary inspiration is the wilderness. At one level the sculptures celebrate the power and movement of Africa’s life forms; at another the textures he creates speak of the continent’s primaeval, rugged landscapes and their ancient rhythms.
