plaster paris heads twigs chainson circular metal base My sculpture , heads void of vital senses eyes ears and nose perched on welded chains Signs -twigs antennas of communication one cannot imprison an idea. Monument, homage to those vanished under the South African Apartheid regime. The work was site specific in this instance was placed on the beach 4 kilometers from Robben Island where Mandela and his comrades were once imprisoned

Anchored and Chained (Homage to the victims of oppression from Auschwitz to Robben island my uncle Aaron Frank to Nelson Mandela No one can murder an idea
Whether it be chained tortured and gassed
Even though the searchlights will draw its arc across the world through mists and storms And dropped papers from the ivory guard towers blackened with their faeces and ashes of their cancerous smoke
The codex will be deciphered read and redeemed
There is always an escapeout of the earths dungeons
Into deaths dimensions
Where the ark in the ether floats and all that sailed upon her
