About the Work
"I was 18 years old in 1981, which was a big year with a lot of protests. I couldn't understand why anyone would want the rugby tour to happen. It divided families and communities. I remember going into the Raglan RSA, and the place was split into two halves. I've seen similar divisions with COVID-19. Today, I don't think anyone would believe that the tour would have gone ahead like it did back then."
- Niki Vernon, ‘My Choice’ March 2023

This artwork was made in reference to the 1981 Springbok Tour.
