Rehema Chachage

Mixed Media artist based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Rehema Chachage (Dar es Salaam, 1987) is a Mixed Media artist based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. She graduated in 2009 from Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town where she received a Bachelors of Arts in Fine Art degree. The themes explored in her work are very much determined by her situatedness, but the most prominent ones are ‘rootedness’ and 'identity’—being a stranger, the outsider, the other, alien and often voiceless—most of which have been inspired by the social alienation that she experienced in the four years she spent as a cultural ‘foreigner’ and a non South African, black female student in a predominantly white middle class oriented institution.
