WISHING WELL C/O CHARLOTTE MAXEKE AND PRESIDENT BRAND STREET  (2018)

 

Digital print on photographic paper

In this work the typical pothole in the road - a common sight (at the corner of Charlotte Maxeke and President Brand Street in Bloemfontein) - is envisioned as an imaginary wishing well; a public, shared space where people toss coins, cast wishes, have desires. The work intimates the complex relationship between history, space and place.
