Africa Child with Albinism No. 3

From a series of figurative sculptural works dedicated to understanding and sharing information on the plight of Albinism sufferers in Eastern parts of Africa, where the rate of prevalence is significantly increased and those affected can be treated to appalling acts of segregation and mutilation — with a belief that body parts of the individual can cast magical powers when developed into potions by local shamans. Toland’s sculpture finds a remarkable intimacy in her studies, the increase in scale and framing of expression broadcasting a due sense of paranoia and tension. African Child with Albinism 3 Part of series documenting the albinos plight in Africa
Artist: Tip Toland
