Lubaina Himid – Jelly Mould Pavilions for London

Lubaina Himid - Jelly Mould Pavilions for London, 2021

Lubaina Himid - Jelly Mould Pavilions for LondonOn the occasion of her Tate Modern exhibition, Lubaina Himid has created Jelly Mould Pavilion for London. The limited edition has been made using a cast from an original Victorian jelly mould; a reminder of the African diaspora's link to the sugar industry and slavery.
Himid’s design is inspired by brightly coloured motifs from kanga, a traditional printed fabric from East Africa and has been recreated on each jelly mould using glazing techniques and silkscreen decals. Many of the Jelly Mould Pavilions feature portraits of influential black people in the civil rights movement. For Jelly Mould Pavilions for London, 2021, Himid has chosen to depict an eye as a reminder of the human connection.
