Growing up amidst historical, cultural and political conflicts.
I originate from a black ancestry and a colonial country drowned with trans-generational conflicts. Growing up amidst historical, cultural and political conflicts. Dwelling in a background that is culturally, spiritually and economically damaged.
I also belong to the most fierce tribe in my nation (Bagisu) with the toughest ritual named Imbalu which initiates boys to men through raw open pubic circumcision. I find myself constantly dancing between the bridges of my traditional cultures and the callings of modernity.Adding in as a contemporary artist, It is my intention to deprogram the rules imposed on artistic expressions, seeking to mirror own sense of being and spirit
I find my path through creating incubation processes. This could involve practicing my art on a living body. Or rather the fusion and construction of objects, sculptures, and installations that explore representations and activities of political, social and cultural powers. Consumerism, culturalism and environmentalism. My works intend to interpret stories of the world and narrate stories from my ancestry and my personal experiences. I focus on the interplay of internal and external experiences that connect the physical being with the psychological and spiritual realms. This translates to driving the emotional chemistry of my artistic creations. My audience should experience the emotions such as Fear, love, sorrow, hope if that is the emotional chemistry of the work
My habit loops in revisiting history, defining the present and creating futuristic projections. My works are abstract and give no direct answers but awaken questions in every soul and compel each to seek meaning and individual responsibility in that sense. I produce my work as Performances, Dance films and Installation art.
