Inhabitant

. . . A person or animal that lives in or occupies a space Inhabitant looks at spaces, specifically inner city spaces, in an area such as Johannesburg and how they are more than they seem superficially; a doorway becomes a home merely through the occupation of space even though it does not have the traditional structure of four walls and a roof.

The transient nature of such an occupation creates subtle shifts in the nature and use of space and brings into question the rights and ownership of such. The energy and superficial expectations of the city can be overwhelming and push its inhabitants to a point where they revert to a natural, animalistic way of living out in the open without the confines of accepted structures.

This work has been produced in partnership with the Goethe-Institut South Africa.
