What you need to know:

  • We live in a hyperglobalised world, so on the one hand, even if I don’t have space in Nairobi to show my work, there’s bound to be someone somewhere who will give it space.
  • My first film will be out sometime this year. I am incorporating film into my art through video art and net art. I don’t see myself exclusively working with film though.
  • She will take part in the SHE-an art exhibition to be held in London in July, and Accra, Ghana, in August. Her writing has been featured in Jalada Africa as well as other journals. She was also featured in the British Council Global List 2016 as one of 33 most inspiring activists/filmmakers.
