'WHAT IS MINE?'

Colonisation of Body, Mind and Culture.

  Capitalising on the stereotypes associated with black people; aggression, violence, hyper-sexuality and lack of control; following a journey of dark history following the impact that has been left on the black body and the Global South, with particular focus on the position of the black female in the oppressive, phallocentric racial matrix.

Bio

My name is Ramzia Jawara and I am an interdisciplinary artist, specialising in photography. My artistic production is an intuitive and emotional  response to my surroundings and worldly affairs. With a background in performance I see the studio as a ground to play and connect with the subject by bringing out qualities in a way that tells the story, with emphasis on visual dynamics. A lot of the work I create is composed of personal experiences around identity and observances surrounding current affairs over race, gender, and sexuality. 

I hope my work can be an incentive to  provoke thought and make statements about the underlying issues in modern culture.
