Art Africa – Ten artists to look out for at 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair, Somerset House, London - Suzette Bell-Roberts highlights ten artists to look out for at 1:54
Pippa Hetherington (1971, South Africa) is a South African visual artist who has worked in lens based work and documentary over the last two decades. Her art practice addresses post-colonial identity, fragments of separated histories, trauma and memory. Working with photography, textiles and rock pigment, she explores stories around loss, grief and remembrance. By excavating collective and personal memory and working with fragmented recollection Hetherington reflects on the pieces in history storytelling that are so often buried or erased purposefully, forcefully or conveniently. Amplifying tiny slivers of history she reveals what is deemed invisible, a metaphor of overlooked detail. Hetherington graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts with distinction from ICP-Bard, New York in 2019 and was shortlisted for the Contemporary African Photography prize in 2021 and 2022.
