London, Saatchi Gallery, Pangaea II: New Art from Africa and Latin America, 2015
This is a work that was inspired by the artist's personal encounters as a woman, mother, and wife. It explores the moments of beauty, horror, love and solitude she experienced while relocating to Libya in 2012. As a body of work, the series is an intimate response to the boundaries and unlimited desires of relationships.
Chihota has been exhibited at the Lyon Biennale (2011) and the 55th Venice Biennale (2013) where she represented Zimbabwe. The artist was also the 2013 winner of the Prix Canson and her works are included with the Tate Collection.
