First solo exhibition in Europe. Works on paper of striking symbolic resonance.

About

Tiwani Contemporary is delighted to announce Virginia Chihota's first solo exhibition in Europe, A Thorn in my Flesh (munzwa munyama yangu). Chihota represented ZImbabwe at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013 and was awarded the Prix Canson in the same year.

Over the past years, Chihota has examined her life, recently her experience of marriage and motherhood, and has transformed her thoughts into body of prints and drawings of striking symbolic resonance, rife with allusions to everyday life, and religious and folkloric symbolism.
