This art piece deals with traces of memory: aspects of learning and unlearning: and the mendable nature of remembrance. Part of my practice, involves me engaging with learning – more specifically self-learning, and revising my knowledge of my own cultural heritage.
I normally use my own body and my own personal life experiences in order to explore formulated narratives in my work.
For this art piece, I have drawn on from my own heritage as a ‘Coloured’ South African, 
 

 

whose grandparents originate from O’kiep, Namaqualand, in the Northern Cape of South Africa.
This prompted me to refer back within myself through culture. I see this process as a method of mending and tackling the difficultly of confronting personal and national identity.
Considering I am semi-unfamiliar with this side of heritage I own, there emerged a curiosity within me to engage with the identity I hold. 
This piece assembles into one piece as an installation, which comprises mainly of fabrics, thread, beads and audio. Each of these components aim to express self-learning; touch; delicacy; details to sounds; language and culture; as well as, manual labour of the hands, voice and instrument (the //Gwashi).
The main subject matter present stems from the embracement of the indigenous South African identity of Khoi and San people.
I decided to name this work, ǃHaese mûgus, which means “see you soon” in Khoekhoegowab – this is a language which is spoken in Namaqualand, Damaraland, Botswana and some surrounding regions.
