Sandra Mujinga uses speculative fiction in the Afrofuturist tradition to investigate economies of visibility and disappearance. Her works examine questions of self-representation, preservation, appearance, and opacity through an interdisciplinary approach in which she typically reverses established identity politics of presence. Mujinga’s works deviate from a completely anthropocentric approach to understanding the ephemeral world we now occupy; as a result, the artist draws inspiration in how animals create survival tactics and adapt to hostile surroundings.
Sandra Mujinga has exhibited work at Museum of Modern Art, New York; Venice Biennale, Venice; and Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, among others.
