'The Chapa' Edition
(Part of the ‘Am I African Enough?’ Collection)
As a part of the collection, this edition consists of works that seek to question my own understanding and acceptance of African imagery. What truly makes an image feel African to me? And during my exploration of this topic, I realised how subconsciously, the use of prints has become a lazy representation of a people that are more than just prints and patterns.
(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?)
