For Time as a Shield, the first institutional solo exhibition in Switzerland of Sandra Mujinga (*1989), the artist presents a new, atmospherically dense installation specifically designed for Kunsthalle Basel. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and raised in Norway, Mujinga has developed a practice that deploys sound, ambiences, and imposing sculptures to often unsettling effect. Central to her new installation is a choir of imposing ghostly figures and photographs that confront issues of the body, technology, surveillance, and survival.
