The concept of the exhibition is to start from the beauty of nature colours, share with visitors some understanding of the plants and flowers, and provide some recommended tourism contacts to facilitate CapeTownians to decide how to plan for their next journey to Namaqualand.

This project ‘Construction of a Woman’ is all about how women get portrayed in today’s society. I decided to take it a step further, look at it in a different aspect with a bit of edginess to it. What I found fitting to that criteria was ‘Construction of a Woman and her Nationality’. I then carefully selected four individuals, that differentiated in origin.

Plus the theme of this project couldn't have been more perfect, as the World Cup is around the corner.
