Abduction, after Rubens, 2011 cat katty vandenberghe. Art paper digital print.

Featured in the Afrikaans annual art magazine 'POMP', 11th edition, 2011.

A feminist protest against Rubens and his contemporaries, as well as a protest against the current levels of rape, abuse and disempowerment of women in South Africa. It seems that old ideas are finding new traction, and I find myself constantly furious at how women are condescended to by patronising men in our new guard of leadership.
