The Revenge of 400 Years is Losing its Baby Teeth 2018 Baby teeth and custom-made stokie slipper approx. 22 x 9 x 6 cm
‘The revenge of 400 years is losing its baby teeth’ is modified from the Italian proverb ‘a hundred-year-old revenge still has its baby teeth’. This new version alludes to the abuse of Africans through slavery and colonialism, and how at last – this issue, ignored for so long – is slowly starting to gain traction.
It is a tradition in Zimbabwe and South Africa to put one’s baby teeth into a stokie / slipper for the Tooth Fairy as opposed to under the pillow as in most other English-speaking countries.
Dialogue With The Youth 2017 Rotten wisdom teeth, velvet and gold-leaf frame 35 x 52 cm
Inspired by Martin Kippenberger’s work. One night in Berlin after allegedly drunkenly parading as a Nazi at the punk club SO36 (which he helped run), Kippenberger was severely beaten and hospitalized. The next day he had a photographer take shots of his bandaged, swollen face, from which he then painted a self-portrait titled ‘Dialogue with the Youth of Today’ (1981).
