Cape to Rio – Ink on Map 2011-12

An old nautical map plotting the route from Cape Town to Rio De Janeiro serves as the ground for a work about migration to and from the African continent. The swallow icons, placed on squares of gold leaf, fly to and fro. They suggest the potential for the return of those who have left the shores of Africa for the Americas.
