Msezane (South Africa) maps out how the process of commemorative practice informs constructs of history, mythmaking, and ultimately addresses the absence of the black female body in public spaces and sculpture.

In 2015 she performed at the removal of the John Cecil Rhodes statue at the University of Cape Town (left). Selected group shows include Women’s Work and The Art of Disruptions at the Iziko South African National Gallery (2016), Dis(colour)ed Margins at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe (2017), Re[as]sisting Narratives at Framer Framed, Amsterdam (2016), plus a recent solo show at Johannesburg’s Gallery MOMO, titled Kwasuka Sukela.
