“Choker is contained, yet unhinged, a disorganisation of Self's fashioning which speaks to the construction of her affect”

In her bold, confident and vibrant paintings and works on paper, Tschabalala Self plays inventively with figuration, deconstructing and recreating the Black female body, using various techniques, including collage.

Choker is an image of a young woman. Her elegance and beauty resemble that of the tufted coquette, and like the hummingbird, one can expect her long neck to expel charming notes and graces. However, there is a disorganisation to her fashioning which speaks to the construction of her affect. Choker is contained, yet unhinged. Tschabalala Self, 2017.

This elegant composition, featuring a detail of Tschabalala Self’s painting, Pussyfoot, 2016, is a hybrid print produced using both screen and digital printing processes, using three different types of ink. The print was produced on the occasion of the exhibition Tschablala Self at Parasol unit, London, 17 January - 22 March 2017.
