Bella Knemeyer

Bella Knemeyer (b. 1991, Cape Town, South Africa) lives and works in Cape Town. Fascinated by the complexity of city-making and the intersections of culture, the built and natural environments, she has pursued various studies to shape an interdisciplinary approach to engaging urbanism. In 2017 she coupled a BAFA, majoring in sculpture from the University of Cape Town, with a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Edinburgh. Over the years, she has both assisted and collaborated with numerous South African artists and academics, worked in landscape architecture practices both in Cape Town and Girona (Spain) and taught on various university programmes. She has exhibited in several group exhibitions, with her work recently forming part of A pebble in the mouth, a group presentation curated by Maja Marx for the 2022 Turbine Art Fair.
