Zandile Tshabalala: Enter Paradise
March 4, 2021 - April 18, 2021
ADA \ Contemporary Art Gallery:
Ground Floor, ALTO Tower, Villaggio Vista, North Airport Road, Airport Residential Area, Accra, Ghana

Interrogating alternate ways of representation for Black women, Tshabalala’s opulent acrylic self-portraits depict confident women empowered in their beauty, intelligence, and subtle allure, affirming ownership over their body and sexual nature as they face the viewer. She achieves this by incorporating vibrant color schemes and luxurious animal print patterns, forging tropical dreamscapes in which her subjects fiercely and unapologetically thrive.
