All of a Sardine


Dried Kapenta (Lake Tanganyika Sardine)

Rhodesian Teak, brass plaque

Size: 33.5 x 50 x 3.8cm

Edition of 5

Using the aesthetic and lingo of old-school white Zimbabweans and Rhodesians this work incorporates the expression "all of a sardine". This is slang for "all of a sudden". The kapenta fish is eaten by a wide range of the local population and served as snacks and starters in hotels. Introduced into Lake Kariba from Lake Tanganyika in the 1960s, it is one of the few food sources still available in Zimbabwe.
