Artist Description

Commenting on colonialism and alienation, this work elaborates on the ongoing discussion surrounding the arrival of Europeans in Africa. Regardless of the fact that the Grey Squirrel was introduced in South Africa during the Cecil John Rhodes era and the pale faced Europeans were aliens to the continent, they both find themselves calling Africa their home. Both depicted as vulnerable and passive, this work questions the judgement on heritage and the sense of home.
