THEY TRIED TO BURY US
Date: Thursday, August 2 at 18:00 – 20:00
Venue: National Art Gallery of Namibia
This exhibition deals with the unresolved past that is the genocide, and how it is all around us.
The floor installation is made of sand, stones and grass collected from within and around Otjinene. It is a scene of remembrance of those who died. The heads are made of air-drying clay. The fragility of the medium symbolises the fragility of life. The installation allows the audience to walk the thin line between the past and the present.
Date: Friday, August 3 at 12:00 – 20:00
