“The End of Eating Everything”
Previous Next
 

Wangechi Mutu was born in Nairobi, Kenya, and lives and works in Brooklyn, N.Y.  She is best known for her large-scale collages depicting female figures in lush, otherworldly landscapes. Her work explores issues of gender, race, war, globalization, colonialism and the eroticization of the black female body. She creates mysterious cyborg-like figures pieced together with human, animal, machine and monster parts. She often combines found materials and magazine cutouts with sculpture and painted imagery, sampling from sources as diverse as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry and science fiction.
