Born in Chicago in 1943, currently living and working in Colorado Springs, Senga Negundi is an African-American artist expressing her exploration of the human body through performance-based sculptures and installations. Her best-known work R.S.V.P. (1975), created with the aim of encouraging a response from the viewer, was an installation of sand-filled, dark-hued pantyhose knotted and stretched into all directions. Her more recent work includes performative installations incorporating ritual dance, sand painting, music and videos, involving cross-cultural references to the crafts of indigenous cultures around the world.
