kali van der merwe

Kali holds a Fine Art degree cum laude majoring in sculpture from the University of Cape Town. Post formal study, she sojourned in Berlin “the capital of re-invention” returning to South Africa as a documentary filmmaker. She combined social issue filmmaking with creative social development and her collaborative documentaries won multiple best film and jury awards at local and international film festivals.


In a present transformation, living a rural existence in the Overberg, Kali combines creative photography, experimental filmmaking, soundscape design and taxidermy installation as her mediums of exploration. Her work transfigures external form in a search for the immaterial, traversing nuanced interconnections between death and life.
