PIpes that Bind
Pipes often are channels moving from the supplier to the supplied and vice versa. Some of these pipes not only supply but they actually bind as well. They need not be physical pipes – the pipes can be social, political or even economical.

The exhibition series Sasa Nairobi is the basis of Goethe Institut Nairobi work in the field of contemporary art. The aim is to work with artists from Kenya that have an advanced and innovative approach and often commission them to produce a new work. Since 2008, Goethe Institut has exhibited around 40 artists, the last being a show by Jackie Karuti.

The series continues with Paul Onditi, a former Kuona Trust resident. His work examines the cyclical nature of human experience and behavior, encapsulated in the oft-touted expression “what goes around, comes around.” The exhibition Pipes that Bind, Faces in Places explores the existence of both visible and invisible pipes round the globe that are binding in one way or the other.
