Tales of the Vulnerability of African Women in Transit Spaces looks at transit and transitional spaces as both ‘real’ places of movement and as metaphorical spaces of journeys, transitions, and changes that describe where we come from and where we are going. Using Surrealist imagery, these drawings by Blac Space, (Kgaugelo Lekalakala), explore the ways African women traverse the city, from their homes to their places of work; navigating taxi ranks, walkways, and sidewalks every single day, moving quickly to avoid the gaze of men who regard them merely as artefacts in space.
