Nyasaland Analysand is Samson Kambalu’s second solo exhibition with Goodman Gallery. Working in film and multimedia installation, Kambalu draws on his Malawian upbringing surrounded by syncretic cultures such as the Beni and Malipenga to produce work that celebrates and interrogates the practice of integrating Western influences into local traditions and customs. Through references to a childhood brand of gum, the African Dandy, and Hollywood Westerns Kambalu tells a story highly personal in nature of the post-colonial cultural condition.
