TERRENCE MUSEKIWA (b. 1990, Seke, Zimbabwe)
Terrence Musekiwa comes from a long line of sculptors. He started carving stone at the age of five, at first helping his father and later moving away from traditional aesthetics. He breaks the divide between traditional and contemporary. While each work begins with the familiar toil of shaping the stone, works are then fused with a myriad of found and industrial objects including chains, plastics, glue, and resin. His visual language wrestles with convention to simultaneously challenge and pay homage to Zimbabwean tradition. His conceptual vernacular introduces a dialogue about present-day Zimbabwe, its mechanics, politics, micro and macro trade systems, hardships and a quality of magic that permeates the personal lives of its inhabitants.

Musekiwa earned his degree in fine art from The School of The National Gallery of Zimbabwe, Harare (2013) and has completed numerous international art residencies in the past two years including OMI in New York, Tiroche DeLeon in Tel Aviv, and CTG-R: Newfoundland in Canada with the CTG Collective. His work has been exhibited and collected internationally, with his first institutional inclusion in 2016 at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe.
