My artistic practice is informed by my position as a Zimbabwean currently living in South Africa. My work deals with human migration, a dislocated national identity and the dark humour of present realities in Southern Africa – largely a backlash to a history of oppression that continues to this day. I realize my work through the use of ubiquitous materials and employing local popular visual strategies as a form of expression. This often tends towards the language of craft and curio within a conceptual fine art context.
