Dora Prevost is a sculptor finding inspiration for her sculpture in the female body and issues pertinent to women. Common themes related to celebrations of the female body. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and residing in Johannesburg, her art focuses on asserting and reinforcing the female voice.
Exploring women as her main theme, her work is an expression of women’s sensitivity showing their strength and beauty and dramatising stereotypes. She approaches subjects related to gender-based violence and injustice that women face today.
In 2020, Dora made it to the Design Indaba top 50 emerging creatives for the most beautiful object in South Africa. Following her successful project – a sculpture she completed for the PPC Imaginarium award which featured for women who were victims of war crimes, rape, domestic violence, physical abuse and sex trafficking. She has exhibited in several venues and won several prizes.
Dora believes that art could incite the viewer to question the social and political landscape, and through this questioning, possibly bring change toward equality. Art has the power to heal, inspire, provoke, challenge and offers hope which ultimately can bring positive change to the world.
