Lucia Nhamo is a Zimbabwean visual artist. She explores counter-narratives and power relations through performance, animation, video, printmaking and sculpture. Though varied in medium and dealing with multiple subjects, the interdisciplinary and conceptual nature of her work leads to one end: the hope of achieving a more critical sense of self-awareness in the viewer, herself included. She holds a Hon. Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Masters of Fine Arts degree.
During her studies of art at Wellesley College and Carnegie Mellon University,? ?USA,? ?Nhamo not only presented her work in several international exhibitions but also participated in cinematographic projects and gained professional academic experience.? ? Lucia Nhamo’s videos, performances, and installations address contemporary events and question how such moments are multiply narrated, remembered, and represented, particularly as they relate to the recent history of Zimbabwe. The artist’s work deliberately unsettles events of political and economic power, ?racial and cultural identity.? ?????????????????????????????????
She has participated in several group exhibitions including the Bamako Encounters, 10th Biennale of Photography and Video Mali, 2015, MFA Thesis Show, Miller Gallery U.S.A 2014, Video Nomad in Tunisia 2013, and Women at the Top, National Gallery of Zimbabwe.
