Collage av Fågelliknande varelse med mänskligt ansikte och mänskliga ben
Frida Orupabo, Untitled, 2020


4.2 – 9.4 2023

What happens when we sift through history and its dark repositories? The exhibition FLIGHT at Malmö Konsthall presents burning, critical and unrelentingly defiant artworks by Kudzanai Chiurai, Frida Orupabo and Eric Magassa.

FLIGHT unfolds in a sequence of scenes that place the viewer in fluid time and place. Each installation is constructed from painstaking excavation and purposefully veers in and out of the past and present. The exhibition grapples with dissonance; beauty and grit, colonialism and freedom, and that which is yet to come.
