Head Over Heels

Courtesy of Schur-Narula and the artist

Schur-Narula is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by New York City-based painter and printmaker Tschabalala Self. The show brings together works from her series Head Over Heels.

Tschabalala Self (b. 1990) received her B.A. from Bard College in 2012 and is currently an M.F.A. candidate at the Yale School of Art. Head Over Heels explores the expectations and fantasies projected upon the Othered female body. These fantasies are both accepted and rejected within Self's works, and through this disorientation, new possibilities arise.

Self examines the voyeuristic tendencies towards the gendered and radicalized body; a body which is both exalted and abject. Self's protagonistas, fully aware of their conspicuousness, allow viewers the privilege to experience the multiplicities of their various forms.
