Dan Halter



Zimbabwean Dan Halter’s practice uses materials ubiquitous to Africa, employing the language of craft and curio to address notions of a dislocated national identity and the politics of post-colonial Zimbabwe within a broader context. Reflecting on Zimbabwean’s sense of being ‘trapped in a burning building’, Halter’s work considers the ongoing impact of oppression.
