"Born in the first light of the morning [moswara’marapo]" by Dineo Seshee Bopape
In the exhibition “Born in the first light of the morning [moswara’ marapo]”, the artist Dineo Seshee Bopape uses and combines natural elements and technological media to create immersive sensory environments in which visitors find themselves caught up in an evocative narrative of collective as well as individual stories and memories.

Educational goals and activities
After exploring the exhibition, the children will use visual support materials to help them recognise the links and parallels between the artist’s decision to combine a medium such as video, which is make up of pixels, with elements of the earth, in the form of grains of sand, and they will learn how geometry and mathematics are closely connected to the natural world.
In the workshop session, the children will then be invited to create an abstract landscape of their own using natural elements with geometric shapes.
