International Women’s Month Series: Teresa Kutala Firmino
A collaboration between the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS), FNB Art Joburg and Open City, CONSTRUCT is a video-based series profiling femme artists with practices based in Johannesburg. Under the theme Reflections of Self, the second season sees artists interrogating ways that their personal lives show up in their practices.
Teresa Kutala Firmino is a multidisciplinary artist considering magic realism through performance paint and collage. In 2018 she received a Masters in Fine Art degree from the University of the Witwatersrand’s School of Fine Art. Her work examines the construction of dominant histories and the absences they present.
