Mwamba Chikwemba, ‘Afro-sisters I’, 2016, Art Acacia

‘Afro-sisters I’. From an exhibition ‘Herself’ by Mwamba Chikwemba

‘In ‘Afro-sisters’ series in general, I explore more African hair which is a big part of our self-expression and female identity.

Most people in my country are not proud of it, whilst some are.

I am curious to understand what motivates most women to use fake substitutes instead of their natural beautiful afro hair.’
