About this work:
This work looks at the place where colonialism was forced onto South Africa. Cape Town, also know as the Mother City. Here the blade placed upon its most iconic landmark and biggest tourist attraction represents the violence of the history. Cape Town has been socially unstable ever since Settlers arrived, it is a city born from violence and up until today it still maintains it.
