Artist's / designer's statements

This is a zine compiled out of study material that was photocopied and photographs that I took at #FeesMustFall protests at the University of Pretoria. It is artivism.

Chabalala is a Pretoria based 'self-taught' artist. She is an International Relations graduate and this influences her photography and collage by applying theories of social science to the conceptualization and creation of her art works. Her artwork documents the anthropology of society seeking to understand and represent how humans interact with one another and the space around them.
