ROTTING TREASURES a visual lament with Khanyisile Mbongwa

So if southern trees bore strange fruit, what do we call what comes from our ground? What of our own rotting treasures? What of the bleeding soil? The rotting gold, the diamonds of decay?This for their blood that seeped into the ground, for the families now decimated. This is for all the workers who kill themselves slowly, digging into the ground. Digging their own graves. Marikana tragedy 44 men who lost their lives.
