Wangechi Mutu

Kenyan-born Wangechi Mutu is a Brooklyn-based artist whose sculptures, works on paper, installations, and videos explore gender, race, and sexual identity using collage and assemblage strategies that create provocative juxtapositions of the female body.

Her collages are constructed using fragments from fashion and travel magazines, pornography, African art books, automotive schematics, and images drawn from science fiction as well as hand-drawn or painted elements which create a variety of new formations of the body. Photo-based collage elements are often intermixed with decorative or abstract patterns which create a simultaneous feeling of familiarity and other-worldliness to the works.
