Crying for Justice
Crying for Justice is a site-specific installation presented on the site of the historic gallows at the Castle of Good Hope. It comprises 118 graves, symbolic of the number of deaths in detention at the hands of apartheid police. Created as an immersive sculptural graveyard, the public will be able to walk through and between the unmarked graves contemplating lives and deaths of the likes of Imam Abdullah Haron (8 February 1924 – 27 September 1969), Ahmed Timol (3 November 1941 – 27 October 1971), Bantu Stephen Biko (18 December 1946 – 12 September 1977) and Neil Aggett (6 October 1953 – 5 February 1982).
When seen from above and viewable from the elevation of the Castle walls, the installation spells out the word JUSTICE - a cold reminder of the need to dig up the past and continue the fight for unresolved matters of transitional justice.
