Sekai Machache is a Zimbabwean-Scottish visual artist and curator based in Glasgow. Her work is a deep interrogation of the notion of self. She is interested in the relationship between spirituality, imagination and the role of the artist in disseminating symbolic imagery to provide a space for healing. Sekai works with a wide range of media including photography, which plays a crucial role in supporting an exploration of the historical and cultural imaginary.

Sekai is the recipient of the 2020 RSA Morton Award and is an artist in residence with the Talbot Rice Residency Programme 2021-2023. She often works collaboratively and is a founding and organising member of Yon Afro Collective (YAC). 

In 2022 Dovecot began collaborating with Machcahe on a tapestry based on one of her ink drawings. The tapestry, Lively Blue, will be in display in the upcoming exhibition Scottish Women Artists: 250 Years of Challenging Perception, from 28 July 2023– 6 Jan 2024, in the ground floor galleries.
