Re/Member Your Descendants asks what will we become ancestors of? For what will our descendants call upon us? Multiple young contemporary South Africans are interviewed and their responses are turned into stories and poems. Their portraits are photographed and illustrated in the style of magical realism to emphasise their ancestral magic. These are all exhibited online under the Re/Member Your Descendants website. The online exhibition will feature the illustrations, video and audio interviews and the recorded poems and stories layered over music.
