“Exhale” incarnates a torso created from disparate strips and pieces of scrap metal. Bent, ground and welded into a head that seems to be windswept, yet also has a calm and collected air about it. The windswept quality of the scrap metal bust titled captivates the heart and echoes the exposed living conditions of millions of refugees, who face the elements and so much more on a daily basis.

Mwanawasa Mawalela explains: My sculptures are created from found materials which I reassemble into artworks as a continued narrative regarding the plight of refugees across the globe. From war-torn areas to fire ravaged areas or people finding themselves temporarily dislodged as a result of the pandemic crisis we are all facing, “Exhale” epitomises the moment of relief we can all relate to, when at least for the moment, we are safe.
