Mati Jhurry

Mati Jhurry is a self-proclaimed ambassador of the exotic, commemorating and challenging the reveries of tropical leisure time in our postcolonial realties.

Mati Jhurry is a Mauritian artist whose practice concerns the tension between exoticism and the exotified. Through her research, she explores the labour and politics involved in selling tropical paradise and performing this fantasy, particularly in the hospitality sector.

Mati graduated from the Royal College of Art in London (2018), NABA Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan (2015). Mati’s video WE CAN ESCAPE TO THE GREAT SUNSHINE was a winner in the Tenderflix Video Award (2017).
