The collection of pieces made during this working period at EKWC(.nl) reference objects from shipwrecks that have been overgrown and transformed by organic formations. It plays with the transience of common objects and uses the fluctuating border area between sea and shore where fragments of things are thrown together in random formations serves as metaphor for the cultural landscape of my city of birth, Cape Town, at the tip of Africa where various European and African cultures have washed up and coagulated into a fragment culture over the centuries.
