(Swahili for ‘Position’)
‘Part of the ‘Women of Firsts’ solo exhibition
The artist reimagined her well-known ‘Leso edition’ by creating a 3d effect that symbolises the artist’s intent to forcefully bring to the forefront each of these women and their brilliant achievements.
(The ‘Women of Firsts’ exhibition was the artist’s solo exhibition whose goal was simple yet vital, to acknowledge and celebrate six remarkable women who are pioneers in different fields. Women who the artist feels are not well-known because most people do not consider their communities to be as important as others. As such, through each brightly coloured piece, the artist wanted the audience to learn about these women and their people’s stories and question why it is challenging to get this information in the first place and why said information is usually highly biased.)
