About this artwork

After advertising a performance by Shakawe, this poster was recycled, adorned with pasta shells and inscribed with drawings by Ann Neo Parsons and Katryn Schoon, the daughters, respectively, of Medu members Judy Seidman and Jenny and Marius Schoon. Depicting ordinary life in Gaborone, the drawings show a woman grinding food with a mortar and pestle (top left) and girls playing in a landscape (bottom). Shortly after creating the drawings, Katryn and her mother, Jenny, were tragically killed.
