A recent trip to Zimbabwe, the country she was forced to leave as a nine-year-old, inform these new paintings by Kudzanai-Violet Hwami. The London-based artist considers the complex notions of home, belonging and identity with a set of artworks made of images taken from a huge variety of sources, including old family photographs.
