Conversations with my Father is a body of work in
four parts looking at patriarchy by using the Father figure
as a metaphor for society. Part 2 is a series of found objects
which belonged to both my grandfather and my father who’s
careers in the South African Police Force spanned, from the
1930’s to the 1980s, across the militarised era of apartheid.
My father continued to work in security for the Johannesburg
City Council until 2009.
