Exhibition by: Bice Ferraresi and Nuru Jeffah
Italian painter Bice Ferraresi and Kenyan artist Nuru Jeffah share the Alliance Française gallery space in a strikingly contrasting exhibition. Bice’s canvasses immortalize the spirit of tides whereas Nuru’s canvasses, undulating with symbolic patterns, accessorize the ordinary.
Bice, an abstract artist, has been visiting Kenya since the 1990s. Since then, her work vibrates with shades of ocean blue, interrupted with distant and evanescent objects and landscapes that extend the horizon towards infinity.
Nuru, originally from Kilifi, studied fashion design at Evelyne’s College of Fashion and Design, followed by architecture at the Nairobi Institute of Technology. He draws inspiration from space, colour and movement. One of his pieces is part of the permanent collection at the Casoria Contemporary Art Museum in Naples, Italy. His art is regularly hired for fashion statements by creatives and performers.

HIPPOCRATE by Thomas Litti, 2014, 1h42
Benjamin is meant to be a great doctor. But his first experience in the hospital ward where his father works doesn’t turn out as planned. He is facing his co-intern Abdel, a far more experienced foreign doctor. The film was screened during the Critics’ Week at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and is a recent winner at the Angoulême Festival.
