Two Exhibitions: Portia Zvavahera and Mame-Diarra Niang

5 November 2020 - 5 December 2020

Ndichasvika Rinhi Ndionekwe - Portia Zvavahera
 
In this latest chapter of her autobiographical dreamscapes, Zvavahera is concerned with a family’s pleas for salvation, which she attributes to her mother’s illness and journey to recovery. Filial dynamics of care and grief are overlaid with a spiritual longing in these new visual prayers, rendered in the artist’s characteristic layering of painting and printmaking. In articulating her guiding approach, Zvavahera cites a Psalm from the Bible: ‘As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.’

Call Me When You Get There, Mame-Diarra Niang

The artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery. Through the presentation of 52 intimate works, Niang presents a wandering of the mind, in the frame of her long-term preoccupation with the plasticity of territory.
