Exhibition: Where Books go to Die, Mar. 13 – Apr. 11 2014 @ Goethe Institut

Where Books go to Die
Kuona Trust is delighted to invite you to the opening of WHERE BOOKS GO TO DIE, an exhibition by one of our artists, Jackie Karuti, opening on 13th March at the Goethe Institut, Nairobi.

The exhibition replicates a library scene set in a dystopia world inspired by the four elements Earth, Air, Fire & Water. These four elements are believed to be the forces that govern existence for they hold immense power to not only build but also destroy. The symbolism of the elements is translated into a series of smaller installations that depict the state of most libraries as seen in Nairobi as well as in most parts of the world.

About the Artist
Jackie Karuti is a visual artist working in the fields of painting, performance art and installation. Her paintings depict a world of opposites set within a black and yellow palette. With her gradual embrace of new media and immateriality, Jackie has incorporated a conceptual and experimental artistic approach to her work through her performance pieces and installations which collectively focus on themes such asgender, identity and urban culture. Jackie has exhibited and participated in workshops in Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa and the USA. She also writes and has collaborated in various photography projects.

Her studio is based at Kuona Trust in Nairobi. You can find more of her musings on her blog

Opening night: Thursday, 13th March 2014 from 7pm
Venue: Goethe Institut, Nairobi

African beauty 1
Dates: Until March 26, 2014
Venue: Karen Golf & Country Club
Contacts: 0733 606950

Exhibition of new works by Mary Ogembo

About
Mary Ogembo‘s work is inspired by the African woman. She depicts the beauty and daily activities of the woman, and overlooks the negative stereotype placed on the African woman.

Her paintings are very rich with vibrant Earth colors, usually associated with Africa and the background pretty much relates to the subject and brings about the state of the environment. Her subject forms are exaggerated in some areas, which give the paintings a naive look.

Mary Ogembo’s paintings have been collected by The National Art Gallery of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo, The Standard Chartered Bank UK and Casoria museum in Naples Italy.
She has also held successful exhibitions outside Kenya in the following countries; France, USA, Egypt, Canada, Finland, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia, India, Germany and Lithuania.
