Tasmin Randall

Tasmin Randall, born and raised in Makhanda, is a fourth-year Fine Art student majoring in Fine Art Practice and Art History & Visual Culture at Rhodes University. Her research interests lean towards topics that are based on identity politics, marginalised groups, power relations and black feminism. She is most passionate about these discourses, as they derive from a place of understanding and personal experiences.

Her practice mainly encompasses mediums such as digital art and printmaking. Having a background in sculpture and ceramics, she tends to challenge and subvert traditional forms of art production. Her research topic deals with the representation of so-called ‘coloured’ culture and identity within mainstream films. The narratives constructed in these films are often distorted and thus influence society’s understanding of the marginalised group, further perpetuating stereotypes that exist.
