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

The predominant wall pieces in this loud environment stand for colonial borders. The inclusion of fragments of walls from various locations is a symbolic act of breaking down walls, both physically and metaphorically. To reproduce pieces from broken down walls around the world in this case serves as a metaphor for inclusivity and breaking boundaries.
