'Hereni Nasara' Edition
(Part of the ‘Am I African Enough?’ Collection)
Having been a jewellery designer in my younger years, I tap into those skills to incorporate works of art into everyday items. As a part of the collection, this specific edition consists of works multimedia earrings inspired by Nasara, one of the wives of Avenge, with the typical fan-shaped style of the Zande Democratic Republic of Congo.
(The ‘Am I African Enough?’ Collection? is a series of works where I question my African Identity as a born and bred Kenyan currently living in Germany. What is this “Africaness” I identify as? What truly makes me Kenyan? What makes me African enough?)
