    Diary Of A White Black Girl

    08 May 2020 – 07 Jun 2020

    DIARY OF A WHITE BLACK GIRL - PENDA DIAKITÉ Diary of a White Black Girl explores identity and womanhood. The title stems from the artist’s personal experience as a bicultural child growing up part-time in America as a little ‘black girl,’ and part-time in West Africa, often seen as the ‘white girl.’ Identity and language playing a huge role throughout her life, results in art becoming her main language. Each figure is an exploration of that space between soul, body and experience, particularly as a woman of color. Each figure is a jumble of mind, spirit, dreams, sexuality, perception, stereotypes and the unknown, all of which make up identity; all of which society and individuals mirror and project onto each other and themselves. What does it mean to be woman. What does it mean to be an inhabitant of a brown body. Imagery of meat, bones, animal fur, traditional African masks and jewelry, the female figure, and brown skin, delicately detail the figures, reflecting an experience personal to the artist; each piece a fingerprint of her soul.
