I am of mixed race. Black and White. I do not know how much of each. All I know is that I am me and that is what I would like you to see. Not your version of what you think I should be or an image of me that is comfortable for you to accept.

Desiré Davids


Beneath the colour… beneath religion… beneath culture… are we the person we are because of or in spite of? This multi-media work is a search for self and a struggle against confinement. It interrogates the unravelling/unpacking of self. How much of us is imposed by culture, communities, religion, public views and opinions? Are we fearful of change… to disappoint or be rejected… do we question enough?? Who are we… me and you… Who is this beneath our skin??
