In this artwork, the artist portrays her interpretation of the long history of invasion, exploitation, division, and colonisation of the African continent, that still impacts the way we understand the space in which we exist. This work, which is a layered collection of multiple mines from across Southern Africa, represents the way in which the layered destruction of the mined landscape created an entirely new reality. This imagery
Can also refer to people, as one never truly knows what is beneath the surface and how the visible layer was built. This work is a gentle reminder to tread lightly – few are privy to what lays beneath.
