The Circle of Time (upper primary)
"Born in the first light of the morning [moswara’marapo]" by Dineo Seshee Bopape
Dineo Seshee Bopape combines various natural elements in her art to reflect on human history, on both a collective and an individual level, and she harmoniously brings together different levels of time in immersive, sensory works.

Educational goals and activities
While exploring the exhibition, the children will observe and experience first-hand the three levels of time evoked by the artist’s works: geological time as represented by the materials, ancestral time as told through the history and traditions of her community of origin, and cyclical time evoked as a way of bringing her works alive through changes in light and in the seasons, and thus in our perception.
The children will then be invited to take part in an activity that will bring out the various levels of time that the artist evokes in her works.
