Elana, the youngest of three children, was born into apartheid South Africa in June 1958. Being born to a White Jewish family and placed in the hands of a quiet, loving, and spiritual Coloured woman laid the foundation for the central narrative of her life.

Birthed by one mother and raised by two, whilst a common theme in South Africa is not one where the long-term effects have been processed. A multilayered and complex relational template to live with, the narrative from its inception opens the pathway to guilt, confusion, duality, and a life where polarities and binary thinking informs most choices and states of being.

 In this exhibition the artist is using objects, images, and stories from both mothers as an expression of her longing to integrate and make sense of the intolerable juxtapositions which informed her life.
