Anne Zanele Mutema

Anne Zanele Mutema, a conceptual installation artist interested in ideas of space, memory and phenomenology.

A graduate of the National Gallery Visual Art Studio in 2010, in parallel with her studies in cinematography at the Zimbabwe Institute of Photography and Cinematography in 2009, Anne Zanele Mutema has spent several years trying to find a bridge between visual art, material practice and her interest in time-based media.

Through experimentation, she has come up with a unique approach to installation. Her works are immersive installations. The artist develops a dialogue between the public and objects, centered on the idea of an Event or a fact, located at a precise and unique point in history. Mutema, through her artistic practice, seeks to create, capture and recreate events in a personal, cultural and historical context.

Thus revealing a process, a project and a perpetual quest for the artist. Mutema's work has been featured in numerous exhibitions at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, has been awarded prizes and selected to participate in international festivals. After taking the time to start a family, Mutema is making an important and innovative return to practice with "Systemic Necropolis".
