Parasol unit presents Tschabalala Self’s first UK solo exhibition, bringing together works drawn from the first five years of her artistic career. Self’s expressive and dynamic works, which include painting, print and sculpture, depict the human figure. Self’s primary concern is the concept of the Black female body within contemporary culture and how it functions as a social and political symbol. She also plays inventively with figuration by deconstructing and recreating the human figure using various techniques, including collage, by stitching African-inspired material and sometimes paper or sections of earlier works directly onto the work.


This Tschabalala Self exhibition, curated by Ziba Ardalan, is accompanied by a comprehensive publication and a full programme of educational events that aims to engage the public.
