On view at Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Tschabalala Self: Inside Out features the artist’s sculptures and textile paintings exploring her lived experience as a Black American woman.
Tschabalala Self (*1990, Harlem, New York) is deeply engaged with the medium of painting. She paints with various pigments, materials, textiles and threads. Her unique technique includes found, acquired, and hand-dyed fabrics. With these she creates figures that depict avatars rather than individuals. The artist draws from her personal experiences as a Black American woman. In this context she stages bodies that are often exalted and excluded within her imagined environments.
