Wangechi Mutu, an internationally renowned artist, is well known for her spectacular and provocative collages depicting hybrid female figures in otherworldly landscapes. She uses the feminine form to investigate and critique issues ranging from colonialism to displacement, ritual, perceptions of Africa and the eroticization of the Black female body. Combining decorative materials and magazine cutouts, she samples liberally from sources as diverse as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry and science fiction.
