In previous works, Diane Victor has often engaged with notions of threat, horror, the unseen, the hidden and the ‘buried’. In other works since the 1980s, she has expressed critique of apartheid but of post-apartheid conditions, and in The Second Coming presents critical views on the threat of Chinese global invasion and economic expansion into many countries, also into Africa. Victor has never comprised and continues to address potent subject matter, albeit disturbing or taboo in nature.
