In this work by a renowned anti-apartheid artist, two women converse, perhaps about their hopes for the future after South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994, the year the artwork was made. Their unrealised dreams float in the air. The work was woven by Marguerite Zulu, June Xaba and Talita Lependo of the Stephens Tapestry Studio.
