The Subverse: Monuments to Hypertextuality

Part 2 Project 2018

28 years after the advent of democracy, South Africa still bears the scars of our past.
The Subverse is a series of surreal stage sets that confront the difficult, unspoken truths of post-apartheid South Africa. By using theatrical tactics such as absurdity, metaphor, juxtaposition, and fairy-tale, known narratives are deliberately reconfigured in order to reveal an alternative narrative - the sub-verse - of past and present South African politics.
