Notes

"My artwork is inspired by Archbishop Desmund Tutu’s persistent fight for the people to have the right to vote and own their identities. Like many people living in South Africa, I have been battling to get my Identity Document as a South African citizen. Many people in this country share identity numbers and in a way our identities are reduced to a sequence of numbers. Without a number who are we?" –Bekezela Mabena
