A Brief History of the Horizon

This body of work aims to examine space, both real and imaginary, in colonially-based representations and mapping of land and landscape in South Africa and on the African continent. While the work is primarily photographic, it includes elements of painting and installation, unified by three visual devices: the horizon, the road and the boundary.

 

Mapping land has always been an act of imagination as much as a practice of documentation. Borders, roads and property rights are human-made. Ultimately this collection of images and objects intends to engage our troubled history of looking at, belonging to, and relationship  with the land.
