'The Khuchia Ena? Edition

(Part of the ‘Am I African Enough?’ Collection)​

As a part of the collection, this edition consists of works that depict the relationship between fashion (through the deconstruction of the leso fabric worn by the people of East Africa), language (through the artist’s traditional dialect of Luhya that she uses to portray questions she has about her “Africanness”) and hair (the ultimate African woman’s crown).
 
(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?)
