LUPITA ON WANGECHI | by Zina Saro Wiwa
Back in 2010, as part of her project “This is My Africa”, Zina Saro Wiwa interviewed Lupita Nyong’o about her love for the work of Wangechi Mutu.
"She creates these new bodies, they’re very elegant, very loud and sensual at the same time, really primitive and yet futuristic […] In Africa there’s all this talk about tension between tradition and modernity, but when these two clash, so many other things come out. And that’s what I feel Wangechi captures, that complexity, that new identity that comes out of an Africa that’s flexing it’s muscles and trying to find its place. - Lupita on Wangechi
