WITNESS

The photographs in WITNESS relate directly to a number of site-specific installations/ interventions including a staged artwork in one of the new homes in District Six, also included in the LAND program.

This body of work examines the ongoing issues of forced removals and land compensation in District Six. The exhibition engages in narrative oral history in unique manner, through a series of social sculptures and installations. The project, conducted between 2011 and 2013, sees the artist collaborating with four District Six veteran residents; Ms Susan Lewis, Mrs Fasia Adams, Mr Abubaker Brown and Ms Zelda Hendricks.
