Vernissage: March 13, 6-9 pm
Artist talk: March 14, 3-5 pm

Born in Zimbabwe but currently based in Berlin and Cologne, Mandhla Ndubiwa is a transfeminine, gender non-conforming multimedia performance artist that blends experimental R&B and Soul music with visual projections and performance. Fresh off a theatrical residency at Sophiensaele in Berlin, Mandhla will debut her performance and installation series at Skånes konstförening.

Through her artistic practice, Mandhla explores the complexities of embodiment, love, and migration using her own trans-feminine, gender non-conforming lens. In this first exhibition in an art context, she ruminates on the many intersections of her identity and migrational story as a form of release. The exhibition mixes movement, dance, gender, desire, sex, love, and witchcraft through various forms of media as Mandhla offers her own brand of visual storytelling about the parallels between Zimbabwean culture and her own experience as a body.

As a political and social activist, Mandhla is a part of the BI*PoC collective DEMASK, which strives to create safer spaces for QT BI*PoC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous & People of Color) in Cologne and surrounding areas. She currently studies Design at the Rhein-Waal Academy in Kleve.

Curator: C. Grace Chang

Our program and exhibitions are presented with support from Malmö Stad, Region Skåne, ABF and Swedish Arts Council.
