Dana Whabira is a Zimbabwean artist, architect and cultural facilitator who lives and works in Harare. She is founder of Njelele Art Station, an independent project space that focuses on contemporary, experimental and public art practice that intervenes into the city itself. Located in the bustling car mechanic district (on the fringes) of Harare, it acts as an urban laboratory where ideas are generated and resonate out into the city through projects that provoke discussion and engage with the general public. Through her work she revisits the physical/cultural landscape to recontextualize meaning and narrative beyond binaries that have been pre-inscribed through controlling power structures.
