Dreaming South Africa
In this painting Mirta Kupferminc represents Africa as Mother Earth,
her soil giving birth to life, represented by grass in the colors of
the South African flag. A giant football is emerging, made of earth
and acquiring the golden hues of the world cup. All men and continents
are represented by a symbolic sillhouette bearing the Argentinean colors
and containing innumerable shapes, among which we can recognize the
dialogue between Argentina and South Africa, in the upper left. On the
lower part of the painting we can see three men of different ages, who
in Argentina are Dreaming South Africa.
