Through her photographs, she addresses themes of displacement, conflict, history, memory, and erasure. This exhibition will present twenty-three selected works from three recent photographic series by Ractliffe that examine landscapes of Angola and South Africa as sites of conflict and contestation. Focusing on the aftermath of the Angolan Civil War and the intertwined conflict known in South Africa as the “Border War,” her photographs reveal the complex traces of the past in the present.
