Creepy statues on the Promenade

Simon and I took our American friend Kerry for a walk on the Seapoint Promenade recently. They talked big ideas and I played with my phone.

As a serious postcolonial theorist Kerry was horrified by how kids in this country play on simulation oxwagons. So of course I made her pose on one. One has to keep one’s sense of humour.

Their are 18 statues in the Walking the Road series. They were vandalised a few times, each time causing a chorus of shrieks in the local papers. But they were only supposed to be up for a short time, and have now been removed by the artist, Marieke Prinsloo-Rowe.
