Filtered Memories (2009-2010)

Filtered Memories 1977 - 1981, Filtered Memories 1987 - 1996 and Filtered Memories 1990 - 1992 are 3 series of 10 drawings each, based on selected memories of the artist. Nkanga filters and selects moments in her childhood and teenage years that had a certain impact on her life. These memories refer to the loss of innocence, home, security and of loved ones. The titles and time frame of the drawings are of important significance. Experiences and memory are frozen in time, giving a glimpse into the artists personal experiences, both in her homeland and Europe.
