Confronting the Collection (working title)

PhD candidate on the Advanced Practices Programme in the Visual Cultures department at Goldsmiths, University of London. This PhD takes as a case study an on-going piece of research and continued conversations with South African-based artist and designer Wanda Lephoto and co-founder of the African Fashion Research Institute, Dr Erica de Greef, which aims to reveal the complexities of exhibiting a dress collection which was worn, owned and donated by white South Africans and which resides in a museum in South Africa. Confronting the Collection (working title) is a proposal for an exhibition which decolonises and unpacks the problematic histories held within this collection.
