Presentation

Crystal Yayra Anthony (b. 1997) is a self-taught Ghanaian artist living and working in Accra, Ghana. Her practice seeks to uncover alternative forms of being using the human body’s most natural and vulnerable state: in the “nude”. Without clothing, Crystal’s subjects may present themselves as they are. Away from preconceived notions of decency or performative and acceptable expression, her practice investigates what African society could look like without the assimilation of colonial era puritanical and conservative notions.
