Ronchini Gallery is pleased to present Cut From the Same Cloth, an exhibition of new works by American artist Tameka Jenean Norris. Through a wide range of media, including performance, video, installation, photography and painting, Norris uses her own personal experiences and memories as an artistic reference, incorporating them into her work to explore identity and self-image. Drawing upon her journey of growing up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and spending 15 years navigating Los Angeles, Norris addresses issues in music, art, academia, sexual exploitation and street-life; all experiences of which she has been the subject, actor or agent. Her work scrutinises identity, self-exploration, discovering and owning one’s image and critiques contemporary social issues surrounding the appropriation of black culture and female-identity.
