As an Afrikaner woman in her sixties, Alkema has lived through various changes in South Africa. It was only in the last five years that she started exploring the history of Afrikaner women.

Executing her work by using traditional feminine craft practises and specific motifs, the artist comments on the paucity of information and documentation of Afrikaner women’s history. This exhibition is presented as part of Alkema’s Masters Degree in Fine Art at the Durban University of Technology.
