Kikulacho, Nairobi brings together a diversity of thinkers, artists and cultural producers in an artistic process which seeks to absorb, engage with and reflect upon people’s complex relationships with, and experiences of, food and the ‘stuff’ of food. This project follows on from the success of Remains, Waste and Metonymy I in 2015/16, and Remains, Waste and Metonymy II: Sensing Nairobi in 2017.

Food, and the nourishment it provides is vital in multiple and diverse ways; and it becomes central to people’s everyday experiences. Our relationship with and experience of food, its associated practices and the ‘stuff’ of food, is intriguingly complex, diverse, and ephemeral.

Kikulacho, Nairobi explores the ways that food – in all its diversity of material forms, practices, meanings, symbolic association and values – has, and continues, to form, and give shape to multiple, contradictory, sensorial experiences of and insights into urban living.

Using this as our central unifying theme, Remains Waste and Metonymy III: Kikulacho, Nairobiconsiders the ephemeral and material significance of food; the multiple functions and interplay between food, performance, ritual and identity; the spaces for food’s production, distribution and consumption; and the multiplicity of physical, social and political networks and relations in which food is embedded.
