The work focuses on my family in Phola Park, Thokoza , where I live. The idea of being locked in at home and being separated from one another as if we are strangers, where we are prisoners in our own spaces. I imagine that if one of my family members becomes infected with this disease (Corona Virus), it would mean the whole family could be at risk of death.

I stay in a backyard, one room shack with my 2 children and my niece.  My mother is 61 years old, she suffers from back problems, so I have to take care of her. In such a situation of being almost like prisoners, and staying far from each other, how do care for each other? How do we maintain family? These are some of the questions that I ask myself.  I still don’t have answers.
