Breathe, keep breathing. Don't lose your nerve" -

I'm in love with her works, especially "The Butcher Boys", plaster sculptures of three life-size humanoid beasts with powdery skin, black eyes, broken horns, and no mouths sitting on a bench. The artwork represents the brutal dehumanizing forces of Apartheid in South Africa. The animal parts show how people stripped themselves of their humanity and put themselves above others, thinking they were better. 

Always love artworks that inspired by social issues :)
