Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum 'The Gods and The Underdogs' at KM21

KM21 proudly presents artist Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum’s (b. 1980, Botswana) first solo museum show in Europe. The exhibition will include an overview of recent drawings and paintings that have never before been shown in the Netherlands. Sunstrum will also create a site-specific installation at KM21, based on two large new paintings which she will combine with historic items of furniture from Kunstmuseum Den Haag’s large decorative arts collection, in a unique interaction between contemporary art and cultural heritage.

Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum’s drawings, paintings, installations and animations allude to mythology, ethnology, ecology and quantum physics. Using influences from literature, cinema, theatre and other forms of storytelling, Sunstrum compiles an ever-expanding narrative. With her ghostly ‘cast’ of characters and alter egos, she explores unfathomable yet universal notions about being oneself and belonging. Sunstrum locates these characters in indefinable settings that feel both archaic and futuristic.
