'Removed'

Safia Stodel at YOUNGBLACKMAN

Relocation, displacement, impermanence and marginalisation have constructed the social landscapings of apartheid, and, as mapping,s have remained indelible. Stodel’s work references the Symphony Way Temporary Relocation Area near Delft on Cape Town’s flats and its thousand closely-stacked corrugated tin shacks: her animations dismantle and reassemble this landscape. Her process bleaches this location’s topographical lines onto black paper; the paper out of which she constructs and animates moving models of removal.
