Through collage, Wangechi Mutu composes otherworldly characters that embody broad themes such as racial identity, the female body, and African colonial history. Instantly recognizable, Mutu’s collages are pieced together from a variety of sources including vintage medical illustrations, fashion magazines, and pornography, and are often adorned with glitter, paint, fabric, or beads.
