Sekai Machache: Entanglement

Glaswegian artist Sekai Machache’s current series of work, entitled ‘Entanglement’, looks at the relationship between hair and black female identity across the African Diaspora, particularly Sekai Machache: Entanglement through the tradition of braiding and the natural hair movement. As a multi-disciplinary artist, Machache utilises a wide range of media and materials – including synthetic hair and commercial straightening chemicals as well as poetry, spontaneous drawing and embroidery.

Her work will next be exhibited at the Duncan of Jordanstone Masters Degree Show in Dundee on August 22 – 28, 2015. Entry is free.
