Billie Zangewa @ Lehmann Maupin

10 November 2021 - 8 January 2022

Flesh and Blood and Running Water, is part of two concurrent exhibitions by Billie Zangewa, who is best known for her intricate collages composed of hand-stitched fragments of raw silk.  Zangewa creates figurative compositions that explore identity and challenge the historical stereotype, objectification, and exploitation of the black female form.

For this presentation, Zangewa created two bodies of work inspired by a new-found appreciation for family, labor, and ritual that resulted from living and working in isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic. Flesh and Blood features work focused on the artist’s close community of family and friends, while Running Water examines the day-to-day acts of work, parenting, and self-care.
