Is a multimedia artist who interrogates contemporary issues through a synergy of; installations, videos, performance, poetry, fashion, photography, and painting.
He has worked on a body of hybrid works tilted Canerica (2012 – present) which form a virtual eco-world that explores the consumerist tendencies and power hierarchies that are present in contemporary society.
His installation Nfunkira Cankyayi (2013) depicts a metamorph, a hybrid human of the future pouring cans out of a teapot to create a factory. The work is a metaphor and plays on words of the expression ‘pour me some tea?’ which is used by corrupt officials to ask for money.
Xenson’s work explores the concepts of identity and global circulation of culture against the contextual background of pre and postcolonial history. The resulting visual narrative is a reflection of the complexity of contemporary culture and the preservation of memory.
