b. 1994 in Zimbabwe BAFA from Michaelis School of Fine Art, UCT My practice is centred around rewriting the trauma of displacement with the imagined memory of celebration, homage and childlike wonder. In pursuit of memory, identity and a place to call home, my work is grounded in a nostalgia of personal and ancestral experience, of what never was, and of what could have been. Caught in an entanglement between ancestral history and utopic optimism. My work is often informed by memories I have from when I was a child in Zimbabwe and my endeavour to understand the deep nostalgia I feel toward the seemingly unfamiliar. To push a more celebratory narrative that is fuelled by the unshakable belief in an abundance, where the often-imposed political narrative takes second seat to that of our lived experience.
