'En Passant', 2013 oil on canvas, 200 x 220 cm
Admire Kamudzengerere interrogates contemporary political economic and societal issues, often concerning cultural identity and social hierarchies. His paintings, prints, videos and installations are vehicles through which he makes these realities tangible, and function as a mirror that we look into to get a deeper understanding of human behaviour. His works form a chessboard on which he positions the present in relation to repeating histories and mythologies.
