Wanja Kimani

Her visual practice weaves stories and visual histories, which explore and reflect upon the fragility of memory, the imagination, loss and trauma. Her work functions as a medium by which the artist and participants are able to understand the past and locate the present. She imposes elements of her own life into public spaces, creating a personal narrative where she is both author and character. Her current body of work is an exploration of modern day feminist ideologies and experiences, capturing the nuances of the societies she inhabits; the migratory and postcolonial condition which is marked by resilience and transformation. The work is trans-medial encompassing performance, installation, film and textiles.
