Lot 93 - Fungai Marima - On A Mission
I am a Zimbabwean born artist who is based in London. My practice is primarily based on the body as archive, the materiality of the body and its relationship to archiving. Often self-reflective my work investigates themes of displacement, memory, trauma and the female body, highlight my Zimbabwean heritage and personal childhood and adult experiences. I use methodologies within printmaking, performance, sculpture and sound, in attempts to embody the corporeal body. I investigate the body as an archive, to highlight issues of trauma and gendered identity politics within contemporary culture.
