BOS - Constructed Images and the Memory of the South Africa
This new exhibition investigates the memory of the South African "Border War" through the creation of "constructed photographs" based upon specific examples of photographic images from the media coverage of the time. These photographs will be exhibited as a transactive intervention that challenges the growing public discourse around the memory and implications of the war. The exhibition will explore the emotional consequences of the war for the young white conscripts who were sent to fight in a war that was never properly explained or justified to them and which many were never able to talk about subsequently. These are images that will shock and challengethe viewer's understanding of the intense emotional consequences of the war in the remote northern bush.
