Kudzanai-Violet Hwami “The Wedding of the Astronauts” Venice Biennale Art Exhibition


Kudzanai-Violet Hwami was born in 1993 in Zimbabwe; she lives and works in London. Her works are exhibited in the central pavilion of the Biennale at the Giardini.

The works of this artist refer to her past life in her country of origin to examine human relationships in an increasingly digital world by integrating her paintings on old black and white photos or on images gleaned from social networks.

His exhibition is a tribute to “The Wedding of the Astronauts”, showing a wedding ceremony of the Shona people, with a couple exploring the sky; it is a triple-sided sculpture made during the years 1983-94 by Henry Munyaradzi, a Zimbabwean artist.

The paintings on display were made from photographs taken by Kudzanai-Violet Hwami and audio recordings of a funeral ceremony.
