'Women's Identity IX' by Mwamba Chikwemba is a beautiful portrait of a black woman in a stripped dress and wearing traditional African head-wrap. This figurative artwork shows fashion as a way of defining women personality. The artist focuses on subjects of femininity, authenticity, identity, and richness of black culture. Her models are often friends and relatives and noticing details of their behavior, style, and look, the artist enters a conversation about personal vs. collective, original vs. foreign, and authentic vs. standardized.
'The artwork references a Zambian woman who believes that everything you wear on your body is self-expression and you speak without saying a word.' - M. Chikwemba
