Description

To mark the occasion of Tschabalala Self's first UK exhibition, Parasol unit has published this limited edition publication.

Self's expressive and dynamic works, which include painting, print, collage and sculpture, depict the human figure. The fluidity of movement and exaggerated form of her images are quick to capture the attention of viewers and elicit a vivid response. Primarily concerned with the concept of the Black female body within contemporary culture, Self examines the confluence of race, gender and sexuality through a variety of forms and narratives in which each subject – or as she prefers, character – expresses an individually powerful identity.

The publication includes an insightful interview with the artist and essays by Tom Morton and Ziba Ardalan.
