This catalogue accompanies the first solo exhibition in South Africa by American artist Frohawk Two Feathers. Through wildly imaginative and detailed drawings, Two Feathers reimagines colonial history, using the fictional Empire of Frengland as the driving force in his global narrative. For The Edge of the Earth isn't Far from Here, he has unearthed events in a Cape Colony of 1792, where a lone Frenglish garrison - unaware of recent shifts in power 'back home' - finds itself threatened by a Batavian invasion. The drawings - of the key characters, the battle scene, a map of the territory and 'scenes from the veld' - are accompanied by a detailed narrative written by the artist.
