Lot description
Through collage, Wangechi Mutu composes otherworldly characters that embody broad themes, such as racial identity, the female body, and African colonial history, within a singular form. Addressing these concerns, Mutu creates futuristic figures with strangely contorted or amputated limbs, as demonstrated in this 2003 "Untitled" example. Mutu's collages are pieced together from a variety of sources including vintage medical illustrations, fashion magazines, and pornography, and are often adorned with glitter, paint, fabric, or beads.
