You Took The Part That Once Was My Heart
After his death, in May 1873, Livingstone's heart was buried under a mvula tree at Chitambo in modern day Zambia. In subsequent years the tree was felled and given away or even sold in pieces as souvenirs. The same happened to other trees associated with Livingstone. Dutch artists Sybren Renema and Timmy van Zoelan present this thoughtful display of wooden objects and tree fragments drawn from the collection at the David Livingstone Centre.
You Took The Part That Was Once My Heart was first displayed at the Huntarian Museum, University of Glasgow as part of the 2012 Glasgow International Festival of Visual Arts.
