About Sekai Machache

Born in 1989 in Harare, Zimbabwe, Sekai Machache (she/they) is a Zimbabwean-Scottish visual artist and curator based in Glasgow, Scotland. She graduated from the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee, Scotland, in 2012. Her work is a deep interrogation of the notion of self, in which photography plays a crucial role in supporting an exploration of the historical and cultural imaginary. Aspects of her photographic practice are formulated through digital studio-based compositions using body paint and muted lighting to create images that appear to emerge from darkness. Her more recent work incorporates other media and approaches which evoke a sense of the invisible and the undocumented. Machache is interested in the relationship between dreaming, spirituality, and the role of the artist in disseminating symbolic imagery to provide a space for healing against contexts of colonialism and loss.
