Wanja Kimani

Wanja Kimani is a visual artist and writer based in Cambridgeshire, UK. Her visual practice weaves stories and visual histories, which explore and reflect upon the fragility of memory, the imagination, loss and trauma. She imposes elements of her own life into public spaces, creating a personal narrative where she is both author and character. The work is trans-medial encompassing performance, installation, film and textiles.  In 2016, her work was featured at the 12th Biennial of Contemporary African Art in Dakar, Senegal and as part of the touring exhibition, ‘Kabbo Ka Muwala – The Girl’s Basket: Migration and Mobility in Contemporary Art in Southern and Eastern Africa’ at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, Harare, Makerere Art Gallery, Uganda and Städtische Galerie Bremen, Germany. In 2017, her video work was part of the exhibition ‘Landscapes of the Body’ at Art Paris Art Fair, Paris, France. In 2018, she participated in Laboratoire Agit’Art’s exhibition at Dak’Art.  She is founder of Guzo Art Projects; an artist-led initiative, which aims to support artistic practice through commissioning, researching and facilitating exhibitions and events in borrowed spaces. The first exhibition will launch in London in September 2018.
