Sekai Machache

Biography

Sekai Machache is a Zimbabwean-Scottish visual artist and curator based in Glasgow, Scotland. Her work is a deep interrogation of the notion of self. She is interested in the relationship between spirituality, imagination, and the role of the artist in disseminating symbolic imagery to provide a space for healing. Machache works with a wide range of media including photography. Her photographic practice is formulated through digital studio-based compositions utilising body paint and muted lighting to create images that appear to emerge from darkness. 

Sekai Machache is the recipient of the 2020 RSA Morton Award and is an artist in residence with the Talbot Rice Residency Programme 2021-2023. Recent exhibitions include Svikiro, Mount Stuart, Isle of Bute (2023); Body of Land: Ritual Manifestations, Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow International Festival (2021).
