I recently finished a bunch of audio experiments with Jarel, who I first began working with on the NEST's "Legacy" project. The result is four songs for his Plus Minus collection, one new release every month till October. Check out the first one - "Let Go", available on Bandcamp, and follow Jarel on Facebook for updates.
"Dinka Translation" - one of the short fashion films I directed from last year's Chico Leco Presents project, featuring the work of designer Katungulu Mwendwa - has been selected to screen at the 2014 Mercedes Benz Bokeh South African Fashion Film Festival, which is Africa's first fashion film festival! Hooray! Stay tuned for screening venue and dates, and see it here.
Peep some of my work at the upcoming "Future Reflexions: Five Positions of Contemporary African Art" exhibition, which showcases photographic and video work from five leading contemporary artists. The pieces by Jelili Atiku, Wura-Natasha Ogunji, Dennis Feser and Jim Chuchu use various forms to explore the images, stereotypes and visions of Africa today.
The exhibition runs from the 6th of March - 2nd May 2014 at the Behaviour Festival 2014 in Glasgow and is curated by Martin Baasch. Full details here.
Two short dance films from the "Libation" series. Created in collaboration with dancer Patrick Nyangena - who combines a graceful athleticism with an emotive performance style. Filmed at the NEST in Nairobi.
