Kresiah Mukwazhi

Mukwazhi combines materials including canvas, satin, or petticoat, which she stitches and glues together with applications such as sequin. Painted with acrylic and fabric dyes, female figures emerge from the ground. They take on seemingly vulgar and obscene gestures, hinting at the artist’s inquiries into the arduous working and living conditions of female sex workers in her native Zimbabwe’s patriarchal society. 

Against this backdrop of precarization and marginalization, Mukwazhi’s work carefully peels out forms of resistance and self-empowerment.
