Wangechi Mutu

Born in Nairobi, Kenya, 1972
Lives and works in Brooklyn, New York

Wangechi Mutu makes paintings, collages, sculptures, videos, and installations that are lush detailed combines of bodies, fluids, technology, and pornography. Mutu’s manipulations bring to mind the surreal forms of Dada masters like John Heartfield. Her content is erotic and troublesome with ethnographic mash-ups that supply and saturate our visual culture.
