The South African “Home” remains a contested terrain. The public and private self constantly searches for a place of location within a historically contested landscape. The inside and the outside remain two zones of reference in this work. The illusions of security define for us our inability to locate.
The inside of the home carries lead panels with excerpts taken from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa (TRC). The TRC is an attempt for the disclosure of a horrific past to serve as a mechanism for establishing an uneasy Present.
