The exhibition is set as a conversation between two bodies of work, one with Mirrors and the other with Scorched Paper pieces that attempt to visualise string theory – often called the “theory of everything”.

Exhibition: Silent Conversations by Maggie Otieno, Sept. 25 – Nov. 20 2015 @ Nandi Road – Karen

Silent Conversation by Maggie Otieno
Opening: September 26, 2015
Time: 2-4 pm

Exhibition Dates: September 25 – November 20, 2015

This body of work is a continuation of the ‘Conversation’ that has dominated Maggie Otieno’s work for the last 7 years. She is engaging her audience to converse with the Elders and others: the sculptures created from a 100 year old red Indian teak wood (Railway Sleepers) and new and recycled metal. She uses this mix of complementary, seasoned, old and the new materials to symbolize societal inter-intra age synergies, dialogues and linkages as well as to arouse conversations within her audience.

To produce this body of works, Maggie has been inspired by looking at people having conversations, whether she is part of these conversations or not. ‘I get caught up in the expressions, and gestures that I see. I have translated these distant conversations into my work and they therefore form a part of a continuous conversation within the audience that interacts with the works … The works on Block Board are ‘ALL MY THOUGHTS’ – A series of new works embodying the conversations that go through my mind as I interact with my materials, eliminating and adding onto elements at my discretion. It is about what I choose to remember and that which I choose to forget, and these too, are my Silent Conversations’

Maggie has taken part in numerous exhibitions, workshops and residencies both in Kenya, East African region, Algeria, Nigeria, Netherlands, USA and UK.
