Plaster of paris, medical gauze, cottonLiona Nyariri’s work revolves around the study of pidgin languages (similar to creoles or patois) that came from Southern Africa. A pidgin language happens when one or more languages come together to form a hybrid language. Nyariri uses the research she finds to propel the creation of her own mythology around a character known as ‘Pidgin.’ This character is meant to represent the physical manifestation of pidgin languages and is the metaphor through which she explores the way mythologies and language intersect and are used for political, social and economic gain or otherwise. Nyariri’s process includes creating text work and objects that perpetuate the mythology of the character, Pidgin.
