Mapondera will show his works created during his residency at Atelier Mondial. The artist’s works — a mixture between tapestry and sculpture — are eloquent testimonies to his stay in a foreign country: he used the cardboard packaging of food he bought in Basel without knowing what the contents were and how it tasted. The cardboard thus becomes a kind of travel diary of foreign tastes, which often arouse a longing for local food (this longing is also recorded in the Shona title, “Shungu Madanha”).
