SEKAI MACHACHE

About

I am an artist based in Dundee, Scotland. My work is based on a deep interrogation of the notion of self. Having been born in Zimbabwe and raised in Scotland I have a particular interest in W.E.B Dubois’ notion of Double Consciousness which expresses the psychological challenge of having African heritage whilst living in the West.

 

I have developed a multi-disciplinary practice utilising a wide range of media including photography. My photographic practice is mostly formulated through digital studio based compositions using body paint and muted lighting conditions to create images that appear to emerge from darkness.
