Lucia Nhamo is a Zimbabwean visual artist currently based in South Africa, who explores counter-narratives and power relations through performance, animation, video, printmaking and sculpture. During her studies of art at Wellesley College and Carnegie Mellon University, USA, Nhamo not only presented her work in several international exhibitions but also participated in cinematographic projects and gained professional academic experience. Continuing to reflect her own personal experiences, her artwork engages the themes of national, racial and cultural identity. In her interdisciplinary and conceptual work, Nhamo often uses personal experience as a starting point to talk about themes related to national, ethnic and cultural identities.
Lucia Nhamo’s artist residency is promoted by Goethe Institut Salvador-Bahia in collaboration with Lanchonete.org and Musagetes.
