Zeitz MOCAA presents a solo show with the South African artist Senzeni Marasela. The exhibition traces significant themes in her practice, particularly in relation to the persona and alter ego of the artist, Theodorah. Inspired by, and in femage to her mother, Marasela has over the last sixteen years explored the role of black working women in South Africa, subjected to the devastating effects of migration, patriarchy, and apartheid. Through printmaking, drawing, performance, and mixed-media installations involving textiles and embroidery, Marasela’s work unpacks history, memory, and personal narrative, emphasising historical gaps and overlooked figures.
