About this artwork

2024, Acrylic Paint and Medium on paper, 150 x 200 cm

Venice Biennale 2024 - Zimbabwe Pavilion Undone’ - 20 April - 24 November 2024

This work consists of layers of pattern and is loaded with history. The patterns contain soul. The work has a sculptural feel and there is a strong reference to Shona sculpture. As a 3rd generation Zimbabwean sustaining a family lineage traceable to various locations in Europe the unconscious memories of the artist are complex, interrupted and multilayered.
