Trained as a photographer and visual artist in Zimbabwe and South Africa, Kresiah Mukwazhi works across various media, including mixed media collage, sculpture, performance, and video. Resembling large-scale quilts, her vibrant textile works are habitually loosely hung on gallery walls or suspended from the ceiling, further accentuating their plasticity. 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. Often remaining the last resort for sustaining themselves, prostitution further exposes them to exploitation and violence.
