Nyasaland Analysand is Samson Kambalu's second solo exhibition at Goodman Gallery. The much-awarded artist's multimedia work includes site-specific installation, performance and video and while he now lives and works in London, his work is still profoundly influenced by his Malawian background and the Protestant traditions of inquiry, criticism and dissent.

Nyasaland was the name given to present-day Malawi when it was established as a British Protectorate in 1907 and an 'analysand' is someone who is undergoing psychoanalysis. Kambalu's exhibition 'Nyasaland Analysand' is an autobiographical journey through the fusion of cultures that made up Malawi when he was growing up, and a critical interrogation of how Western influences penetrated these familiar local traditions and customs . The exhibition employs various mediums for its exploration of self-expression, from dance to film to maps.
