The exhibition Contemporary Female Identities in the Global South explores multiple constructions of female identities by five women artists: Bharti Kher, Nandipha Mntambo, Wangechi Mutu, Shirin Neshat and Berni Searle. The exhibition is divided into three worlds. The first is configured around the Fall, a realm where the natural and human worlds meet. The animal-human hybrid figures represent the second world of the exhibition. In the third world of the exhibition, the viewer is reminded that the body is real and embedded in race, religion and identity.
