Turkana Boy is the common name for KNM-WT 15000, the nearly complete skeleton of a 12-year-old (or possibly 9-year-old) Homo erectus who died 1.6 million years ago. It was discovered by Kamoya Kimeu, a member of Richard Leakeys’ palaeontological expedition to Lake Rudolf (now known as Lake Turkana) in 1984. In this re-visioning, the African child is shown as a vellum mannequin prior to being subjected to a process of taphonomy (being cast in metal). First exhibited at CIRCA on Jellicoe as a part of my exhibition called ‘Cradle Snatcher’ – paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs centred on the historical stratification and hybridity of a post-colonial landscape—the Cradle of Humankind in Gauteng, South Africa. Cast I out of V was sold, on auction, to Paul Harris and the Ellerman House Collection.
