She has exhibited in various group shows including Turbine Art Fair, The National Arts Festival, MTN & UJ Continuing Conversations, top 100 Sasol New Signatures (2019) and Top 20 Thami Mnyele Fine Art Awards (2019). She is currently part of the Tsammu Market Laboratory playwriting programme and holds two degrees in humanities.

In Henrietta’s words: To me, drawing is a physical process and I have long wanted to experiment with using my own body in its awkwardness to move against and with my drawings and both be an embodiment by interaction and a form of ‘redrawing’. An echoed call and response. The body takes up space, place and geography in our communities, families and identity and these structures, ideologies and constructs move our bodies. 

Henrietta Scholz has joined us as part of our self-funded AIR programme.
