LONDON.- Pilar Corrias is presenting the second exhibition by American artist Tschabalala Self. The exhibition features new paintings, sculpture and an animation that continue to foreground Self’s exploration into the cultural expectations placed upon the gendered and racialised body. Through her use of form and function, Self parses the iconographic significance of the Black female body in contemporary culture. In Thigh High, the garments, shoes and accessories worn by the figures add a layer of complication to their form.

The emotional, physical and psychological implications of the figure’s fashioning gives way to existential concerns. In each work, there exists a tension between foreground and background that mirrors the character’s position in the larger social context. As silhouettes emerge and disintegrate into the pictorial plane, the politics of identity jump to the surface. Shown in unison, the characters, articulated through stitch and textile assemblage, create a community and hold space for varied iterations of a shared experience.

“Harlem-born artist Tschabalala Self possesses the rare quality of being keenly sensitive to the impact of environment and the way it shapes human social behavior. Self creates and positions black figures to serve as a decoding device of circumstance, allowing each individual perspective to speak to the community from which it has derived. Her empathetic and intellectual density guides the creation of a black universe assembled with great distance from white ideology.” - Sasha Bonét
