Meet The ‘Fashion Futures’ Content Creators- Lucia Nhamo [ZIMBABWE]
Fashion Futures is a female-led multinational project curated by Chenesai Mukora-Mangoma, in partnership with British Council and Nataal Media, to foster creative engagement for change and to encourage collaboration by bringing together four content creators from varied artistic genres including fashion, beauty, visual art and anthropology.
Lucia’s work explores the idea of the ‘counter-monument’ as a material and conceptual strategy of alternative representation of citizenship and place, through video, printmaking, performance, and sculpture.
Lucia majored in Studio Art at her alma mater Wellesley College and obtained an MFA in Visual Art from Carnegie Melon University in the U.S.
“I decided to major in studio art at my alma mater in the U.S., Wellesley College, after an exhilarating cocktail of creative courses that I took during my first year, and participating in a community art project painting murals in New Orleans.”
She represented Zimbabwe at the 10th Rencontres de Bamako, the biennial of African photography and video, and was awarded the Prix Spécial.
Following her research trip to the UK, Lucia will return to Zimbabwe to present her installation.
Lucia is inspired to create by the ramifications of larger political actions and current affairs on daily life.
