Senzeni Marasela’s exhibition Sarah, Theodorah and Senzeni in Johannesburg

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.

On at Arts on Paper 44 Stanley Ave; closes 25th June

Guests at Liz at Lancaster loved their morning exploring 44 Stanley with some great coffee at Bean There and a fab brunch at Salvation Cafe.
