Sedibeng, it comes with the rain consist of structures that evolved from an earlier
sculpture looking at abstracted (global) archetypal symbols of masculinity and
femininity, as well as abstracted sketches of the uterus.
Materials used include womb healing herbs, black feathers, metal, green
potters' foam, images of ripe fruit, extracts from the previous sculpture from
whence it developed, animal hide, light and others. The work also hosts within
it another piece untiled(hands) (2016),
which often 'stands' independently – other times within other constellations. The
slide show is of a hand holding, grabbing, throwing, caressing ceramic rocks
made of clay, formed by the hand squishing/casting clay inside a fist.

the title I am not yet sure of really... initially it was "The Name of which escapes me now (in its whole as well as in numerous specific places)"
but it might be "(Azania-izwe lethu)"-
perhaps tomorrow I will have more clarity on it...
The (whole) sculpture/installation consists of 8 sculptural elements...
the individual elements are not yet named- except for one part-
the monument to the Haitian revolution of 1791- this is the sculpture with the mud/dung bricks (and plastic water bottles etc.)
