what a load of rubbish
Tracy Emin’s new work?
That wouldn’t be left for ten minutes out here.
Concrete chunks for building, usable denim pants, grey towelling for wodging under doors to keep flies out, plastic bottles with TOPS intact!, plastic dividers for bedding maize seeds, coloured plastic bags to cut up and plait for headbands, cloth to be resized for lappies or sanitary towels, a plastic plant pot for trapping rats, lengths of unpainted wood for firestarters, plastic sheeting for insulation, painted plywood for buffering gates, a discarded shoe to be stripped down for padding, red stones for uMuthi rituals, white stones for coffin luck (they hold the body steady ion the journey back to the Amatola Mountains for burial), bag with zipper that could be repaired, tyre for potato or amaranthus (moroq) planting, rubble for edging the irrigation water channels from the communal tap, grinning doll’s head for a new toy, broken tiles for shower mosaic or pathedging, dead branches for kindling.
