‘Talitha Cumi’ by Portia Zvavahera

18 May 2019 to 12 July 2019

Portia ZvavaheraStevenson Gallery inaugurates their relocation to Parktown North with a solo exhibition by Portia Zvavahera.

Talitha Cumi (an Aramaic phrase meaning ‘Little girl, arise’), makes reference to a Biblical story in which Jesus resurrects a child from the dead; accordingly, Zvavahera’s new group of paintings is concerned with a longing for spiritual transcendence, freedom from the ongoing cycle of human suffering. As with previous bodies of work, Zvavahera cites a dream as her starting point – in this instance, one of struggle and a desire to be ‘lifted up’.
