"Azania"






at the back- on the wall are stickers with images of flowers(a random selection) that are native to southern Africa, Madagascar, Egypt and Morrocco...




















soil from Egypt ..... Soil from Madagascar







commissioned by Marrakech Bienalle 2016...
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.)
