Ka - Katlehong  / Tho - Thokoza  / Rus - Vosloorus 

On the edge towards South Africa's first democratic elections in 1994, Thokoza - a township on the East Rand of Ekurhuleni experienced ethno-tribal, socio-political, and geo-transportational violence that gripped South Africa's attention - the artist was born within the psychic territory. This territorial unrest speaks to issues regarding collective responses, peaceful negotiations, independence, social + economic redress, and ultimately a struggle to come to terms with the architectures of separatist development. 

The Kathorus Documents functions both as a critical meta-nexus and proto-archive where the collections of archival footage, music videos and works on paper are modes of expression that adjoin the artist's experience of contemporary Thokoza, its history as well as of the consequences of this civil unrest to the own artist's understanding of what may make violence, violent.
