Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This image is part of my African victorian series. I used fabric as a metaphor for contemporary African existence. When I was creating this image I thought about the inherently portable, and simultaneously personal and public nature of African fabric. Because they are mobile, moving as commodities and gifts, and worn on the bodies of travelers, these forms readily pass between cultures and communities. But what meaning does it acquire when it is removed from its intended contexts and frozen in the form of a photograph…I further complicate this notion by embedding western pattern making in the dress to create a sense of hybridity

Artist Profile

Born: 1994

Hometown: Harare

Based in: Zimbabwe

A product of dual heritage, Tamary Kudita was born in Zimbabwe whilst her ancestry can be traced back to Orange Free State, historical Boer state in Southern Africa. She chose to study fine art at Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town. There, she graduated in 2017 with a bachelor of fine arts. Subsequently, she established herself in fine art photography thus beginning her artistic career. She maintains an active studio practice and has exhibited in Zimbabwe and outside the country.

Her investigation looking at the legacy of colonialism on the family structure, has resulted in exhibitions delving into the history of the Post-colonial identity. Her first solo exhibition was held at the PH Center gallery in Cape town which explored notions of race and representation. Her previous exhibitions have been held at the Michaelis Galleries also in Cape town, titled, Maintaining Memories. Tamary, continued her investigation of history with an exhibition titled ‘African Victorian’ which was held at the National Gallery in Harare, Zimbabwe. Her most recent exhibition titled ‘Re-presentation’ was held at Artillery Gallery also in Zimbabwe. This exhibition was an examination of how our unchosen histories shape our contemporary state. She has been awarded The VAW Journal most inspiring art piece award 2020. She is also the first ever winner of the VAW’S Cover Art Award. She has also been featured in Photo District News Magazine which is an international publication. As well as a special mention in the British Journal of Photography.
