Since 2007 Jo Ractliffe’s photography has focused on the aftermath of the war in Angola.  In the latest chapter (the exhibition is entitled The Borderlands) she turns her attention to sites within South Africa’s borders that are intricately connected to that war.  Pomfret, Kimberley (including Schmidtsdrift and Platfontein) and Riemvasmaak were all occupied by the SADF during the mobilisation of the war and its aftermath.  They also share histories of violence and dispossession during apartheid and, more recently, reconciliation and redress.  Her work examines the intersection of these histories and how they impact in the present, everyday life of these places.
