Tschabalala Self, Thigh High, 2019
The black female body is explored and unpicked by Tschabalala Self, whose work combines painting, printmaking, textiles and sculpture to traverse various artistic and craft traditions. The exaggerated biological characteristics of her figures reflect Self’s own experiences and cultural attitudes towards race and gender. In her latest exhibition at Pilar Corrias in London, she continues to question these voyeuristic tendencies, creating larger-than-life figures that strut in high-heeled shoes across the gallery space. Don’t miss it; the show runs until 9 November.
