Senzeni Marasela’s exhibition Sarah, Theodorah and Senzeni in Johannesburg comprises a new series of embroidered cloths and red ink drawings.  The three women alluded to in the title of the exhibition refer to Sarah Baartman (the so-called ‘Hottentot Venus’), Theodorah (Marasela’s mother who suffers from bipolar schizophrenia and who has largely been absent – from Marasela’s life), and ‘Senzeni’ (the artist).   The three women are depicted in various locations in Johannesburg, observing daily life in the city.
