The project WHO I AM WHO WE ARE uses art and self-expression to create spaces and conversations for personal reflection on the themes of citizenry, civic responsibility, race, belonging, ‘ethnicism’ and nationalism. Between 2013 and 2015, this project has collected archival material in various part of Kenya comprising of 80 life-size paintings called Body Maps, 1,500 voices recorded in a public installation called ‘In a Silent Room’, 9 documentaries, 80 interviews and 2,000 photographs.

This first major exhibition of WHO I AM WHO WE ARE showcases a selection of these paintings, stories, recorded interviews and films creating a mosaic of voices and impressions on what it means to be a Kenyan today.
