Performance Art/Installation: Between Us by Miriam Syowia Kyambi, Jun. 14-Jul. 19 2014 @ GoDown Art Centre – Dunga Road, Industrial Area
Between Us is an experimental multi-media production by Miriam Syowia Kyambi incorporating live art performance, installation, photography and video taking place over four weeks in Nairobi at The GoDown Art Centre.
The production aims to unravel and examine critically our perception of what is acceptable, what is private and the meaning we impose on what we see, informed by how we are shaped by the society we live in and the conventions we live by.
