Phoebe Boswell Artist Talk

On Love, Language, and Lizards | Stranger In The Village | On Decoloniality

Born in Nairobi but brought up in the Arabian Gulf, Phoebe Boswell reveals that she felt "amputated from Kenya". The fragility of her Kenyan identity, and the rootless aspect of her being, ignites her work with a delicate search for belonging, her art becomes a vehicle that drives her on her search for 'home'.

During this performative lecture, Boswell will talk us through how her art enables her to channel this yearning, traversing her practice as a series of visual essays relating to personal history, language, memory, race, freedom, the body, her artmaking, and how, as a Black woman artist, she navigates the odious structures of power and conditioning that coloniality aims to govern us by.
