Promised land

Succession, 2006
Glow-in-the-dark machetes
120cm x 120cm


These glow-in-the-dark machetes, made in China, are labelled 'Party Weapons'. Let's just say the title 'Succession' is a pun on the obvious form of the piece, and the current struggle for power within the ANC (and the Alliance) for the next presidency of the party and the country.
