Rene Matic

Born British, Die British

'Born British, Die British' is British artist Rene Matić's first solo show in London.

The exhibition debuts their new film which documents Matić being permanently marked with the words 'Born British, Die British', a tattoo traditionally donned by far-right, white skinheads.

Working across painting, sculpture, film, photography and textile, Matić's practice explores the immeasurable dimensions of Blackness through the lens of their own personal experiences as a queer, Black womxn living in the diaspora. In doing so, Matić aims to expose, combat and question the power relations that pervade the art world and society more widely.
